Errors while slicing, need help to print.

Thanks for your professional, parametric model. It seems to be very sophisticated, but unfortunately I can't print it. When I export the scad file as stl and try to import the stl-file to slic3r, I get an message that 21340 errors have been corrected. When I start the same import with your MotorMountShort2.stl slicer reports only 146 errors but the file is still not printable. My versions: slic3r 1.1.7 stable and OpenScad 2015.03.

How did you slice your model to get a printable gcode-file?

Previous versions of slic3r were not that critical about the stl object manifold issue. My later designs have all been corrected for this manifold issue. I will fix the design and upload it.

However, if you are in a hurry, you can correct the stl in several ways. One way is via following Microsoft site
https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/

Although I fixed the scad file (as far as I can judge) correctly, slic3r still gives a manifold issue. So the generated files has been flxed using the netfabb repair service. Both scad source file and the fixed stl file have been uploaded.
