Hi!
While wonderful, the doorr.stl has self-intersecting surfaces. Do you think this could be fixed? Attaching a screenshot to show the problem area.

The mesh is generated by FreeCAD. I didn't have any problems with it in Slic3r. Are these really a problem, or just a warning?

This could probably be fixed by removing duplicate vertices, if your tool supports some mesh editing or healing. If it's really blocking you, I could try editing the mesh in Blender. Let me know.

Thank you. It caused S3D to not generate any solid material in that area. By using "Separate Connected Surfaces" function on the "Mesh" menu, this worked as a workaround.

Slic3r does something like that but its warnings are not very specific so I just check the results manually. Usually it does a decent job, at least in this case I never noticed.
