Help with ifc export

Postby Epix3D » Tue Apr 20, 2021 11:00 pm

I made this staircase and try to make it "watertight" for ifc export. So far I failed even though I checked it piece(solid) by piece with Solidinspector. When I check the grouped solid it says 1 Surface Border but I cant find it. Another strange thing is in the ifc model only one step shows up..?
Can anybody help me? Attached is the stairmodel in SUv21.

Just a quick tip without trying the file.

If I am not able to solve the "solid problem" with Solid inspector I always quickly export the STL and open it with 3D Builder (Microsoft Windows free app). When you import the model into this app it says that the object is not a solid and there is single click option to make it solid. Then just Save it as STL or 3MF.
