Knife Project cut out I made a half sphere which prints nicely. The sphere is to be used as a stencil for marking your golf ball.

I used the Knife Project to cutout the F. This however created a lot of non-manifolded edges, which are not printable.

How can I cut out the shape and still preserve the mesh?

  • $\begingroup$ Worked just like you said. Just added the solidify modifier. Please make it an answer so I can check it. $\endgroup$ – Claus Jun 19 at 14:06
