This is my first model for 3D printing, and I'm trying to fix non manifold edges. I included a screenshot, there are 6 non manifold edges. Things I already tried: - recalculate normals - remove doubles

To me it looks like there are no double edges left, so I'm clueless to what causes this problem. :) Who can help me?

The way I created this part is deleting two faces in the wall, extruding the floor face and merging the vertices to make it 1 piece again. enter image description here

Non-manifold geometry is geometry where an edge is shared by more than 2 faces:

This is what you should be looking for. It's easy to find using Select -> Select All by Trait -> Non Manifold

enter image description here

Once you find it you can fix it by deleting some unnecessary faces, or separating the edges. You could use Edge split for that:

Note that it splits them all so you need to move one and then remerge the two you like connected(you can use Merge by Distance for that)

  • $\begingroup$ So basically i need to remove the 'inside' of the extra cube on the wall, so I don't have edges with 3 faces, I'll try if that will solve it. $\endgroup$ – Hadassah Nov 25 '19 at 18:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that solved it! Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Hadassah Nov 25 '19 at 18:40
