I’m really stuck with a complex invalid mesh (see below for Rhino Mesh Check details), which I need to be able to work with for 3D printing. I tried everything I know to do in Rhino to fix the mesh and edges.
Mesh is here: https://app.box.com/s/7gyvs9u79g1klw4723yybkdorr6dpssu
Rhino Mesh Check Details:
"This is a bad mesh.
Here is what is wrong with this mesh:
Mesh has 12 non manifold edges.
Mesh has 1 duplicate face.
Skipping face direction check because of positive non manifold edge count.
Important things to consider with this mesh:
Mesh has 4915 normals that are not unit vectors, 4915 of which have zero length.
Although this does not necessarily mean that the mesh is bad, these normals can cause problems if the ultimate goal is for rendering purposes.
Mesh has 5875 faces where the face normal differs substantially from the vertex normals.
Although this does not necessarily mean that the mesh is bad, these normals can cause problems if the ultimate goal is for rendering or boolean purposes.
Mesh has 36 pairs of faces that intersect each other. Although this does not necessarily mean that the mesh is bad, it can cause problems if you’re doing mesh boolean operations with it."
Who knows what would be the best way to use to Grasshopper to get a workable mesh from this?
I have tried ‘shrink wrapping’ with Kangaroo, but couldn’t get settings to work ('Shrink Wrapping' Complex Mesh with Kangaroo (settings)) but wonder if there is a simpler way of rebuilding this mesh?
All ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated - I’m really stuck with it!
