I'm trying to split this for multi-color printing using Meshmixer. I'm running into one big problem. I need to split it into shells. When I do so, It comes up with two shells representing the holes for the waist pivots (somehow these are separate), see attached pic. It then makes them solid, fusing the waist. Is there any way to merge these holes into the torso instead of having them as separate shells?
