Some design programs may leave small defects in the file when exporting to STL-files, this is caused by the incorrect orientation or bonding of the polygon files which build the mesh.
If not solved this errors can create small defects in GCODE files, so it is important to have valid STL-files.
If you suspect your STL file might be damaged or if you perceive superficial defects in your model upon uploading it you can try and repair it.
Using the KODAK 3D Cloud you can repair and print files without installing any software on your computer:
- Click on Upload Object.
- Either drag or search for your STL file from your computer.
- Now your newly uploaded object will be available in your list of files:
Click on the REPAIR button under column STEP 1.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
This will generate a new project with both the repaired and the original file in it. The repaired file will have "repaired" in its name:
