I made this single mesh geometry using kangaroo.
I succeeded in making a nice mesh, but i am having trouble in making the same version with some thickness. I’m planning to 3d-print it with some thickness, preferrably the thinnest possible…
Using weaverbird Thicken would make it go wrong.
I suppose it’s because of the sharp thorn-like edges, but I really need them to remain sharp…
Is there any way to maintain the structure intact and thicken the whole thing smoothly?
It looks like your mesh has lots of problematic non-manifold and self-intersecting parts.
The grasshopper file you uploaded does not include the starting input mesh, but I believe the problem is starting there before the relaxation.
You can check a mesh using MeshRepair then clicking CheckMesh.
You want this report to say “this is a good mesh”
oh. I started with 1000x1000x1000x mesh boxes, printed points to choose anchor points manually, then pressed start.
Maybe I have to deal with the naked vertices?
I tried repairing it, but it stops at some point without solving the whole thing… must be just as you’ve mentioned. Something wrong with the starting mesh…
