…In this video, we're going to make an automatic…repair to get our file ready for 3D printing.…So first, make sure your object is selected.…Look for the bounding box, and your bunny should be a green color.…Then go up to the toolbar and click on the red cross icon, which is the Repair tool.…That takes us into Repair mode. Take a look here at the status box.…We've got some statistics…about our object, some information we need to know.…The number of edges and triangles.…But what we're really looking at is the…number of shells, the invalid orientations, and the holes.…
Netfabb says that we have one shell in our file,…and we have one object in our file, so that's good.…There are zero invalid orientations.…Invalid orientations refers to faces that have inverted normals.…And since we have zero of them that's good news.…We do have five holes in this mesh.…And so that's what we're going to fix with our automatic repair.…Right under that is some options for visualization.…I'm going to turn off the triangle mesh to get a better look at this file.…
