I have a couple of STLs that are essentially just the outside mesh. I would like to get this to print as a solid object with infill, but slic3r will not fill them.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I’ve tried using Solidify in Blender, but I can’t get it to fully fill without generating odd geometry, so I have to leave a void. However, Slic3r picks up this void and thinks it’s an exterior perimeter and tries to print it free-floating. I’ve downloaded netfabb, 123D, and Meshmixer, and haven’t found a solution yet.
Any hints would be fantastic! I’ve attached one of the original shell STLs and my attempt at using Blender to solidify the part.
