Beach Umbrella Patio Ring Adapter Thingie by ArtLabKY Jun 18, 2012

Description

An adapter to put in the glass hole in your patio table so smaller beach umbrella can fit in them without wigglin' all about.

First thing I've made for a purpose, just got into 3D (not to mention, 3D printing!) so thanks to Mere & Lochemage for telling me where I screwed up.

Thanks! I will be printing this guy again in the morning looks like it :)
taking a look at your stl, I can see faces inside of the geometry that shouldn't be there.

I've uploaded a picture that has highlighted all of the faces that should be deleted.
You can try taking a look at KISSlicer. kisslicer.com/ It has a very nice 3D renderer to visualize generated gcode.

The free version is all you need to slice, visualize, and export to gcode. You only need to purchase it if you want support for dual extruders, and a few other misc options (which you shouldn't).

Instructions

100 infill, 2 shells, ext. supports. 230 temp extrusion with my tan ABS.

Make sure to use a caliper to measure your own patio hole in at least 3 different places. Most glass cuts aren't that perfect.

I read here that Repetier Host can be used as a gcode viewer. I haven't tried it yet.

Have you tried netfabb engine? It can import stl and visualise the layers for you.

Also, it van point out if the mesh is non-manifold, or has holes.

Hope it helped! :)
Thanks for the suggestion! That was a very simple installer and I got to see that I had a reversed face. New version is printing; if it works, I'll re-upload with the fixed versions :D
Reversing fixed my first version, but after adjusting for size
&
amp; width for strength, it sealed again. :/
