…Models with intersecting geometry aren't manifold,…and they're not ready for 3-D printing.…But they can be easily fixed in Netfabb with the Wrap Parts function.…This feature wraps multiple intersecting shells…and creates a single manifold volume.…This is a premium feature, and you'll need either Netfabb Pro or Netfabb Private.…So to get started I want to show you what's going on inside this model.…And if you look up in the parts menu,…you can see that there's an example part there.…So let's hide our double bunny, and take a look at this example part.…
This is a slice of our double bunny,…and you can see what's happening on the inside.…This intersecting geometry is going to be a problem for our 3D…print, and we're going to fix it with the wrap parts tool.…So now that we know what's going on,…we're going to delete this part by hitting the X,…and turn on the visibility for our double bunny again.…Go up to the red cross on the menu bar for repair mode.…You can see over here in the statistics panel that we have two shells.…
