I'm willing to offer it on our site, if there's interest. Come to think of
it, we'll offer a forum for every tech that doesn't have one already, as
long as we here there's interest. Let me know if you are interested.

I don't know, but I sure wish Solidscape had one. I wonder what they
would think if I went to someplace that has free forums and started a
user's forum for their machines.

Anyone here think it's a good idea? Anyone here from Solidscape who
could comment, or say whether SS plans to start its own?

For instance, I'm now dealing with an STL file that is perfect in
every way, but it generates many instances of the "too many small
facets, skipping slice" error in Modelworks. There is nothing to fix
in the file, and in some orientations the errors disappear completely.
Unfortunately, none of those orientations are the one that I need to
build in. What should I do?

I've talked to everyone at Solidscape, including the developer of
Modelworks, and they have no advice. I'm still using the 4.1 beta,
because 5.0 won't run on either my PC or my laptop (I'm told they
don't plan to fix that either, but that's another story).

Most of you don't care about any of this, but I'm sure I'm far from
the only SS user to have this problem, and why shouldn't we have a
place to talk about it?
