    That was an interesting project. A large portion of your model had flipped normals. These are faces for which the parameters indicate that the inside is on the outside. I was able to fix that with...

    It's difficult to determine from the photos, but it appears that the program used to create the model is SketchUp. That program is well known for creating models which will not print.

    What does the original model look like? How was the model created? If you open the STL file in a viewer (online or otherwise) how does it appear? Consider to post a screencap of the original or post...

    Your model is quite large! It's certainly a good thing that you've allowed for drain holes, to keep costs down. It might be practical to not reject other methods of printing. I have a couple parts...

    Another aspect of your service selection would not be the overall volume of 230 cubic centimeters or 300 cubic centimeters, but rather if your model will fit within the build box. There is a resin...

    Depending on the topology of the model, you appear to be on the right track by providing drain holes in the model. I'm not sure why you feel it necessary to split the model, unless you expect it...

    Nalita, if you are not Gordo010, duplicating his post will not help you or others with a similar problem. Consider to create a separate post with more details, as noted in my first response to...

    That is a very unusual result. If the brim did not print well, I would have suggested the nozzle was getting starved for filament. I see that the settings calls for 0.6 mm top and bottom layers and...

    Your image is a good start. More clarification would be helpful. I see the item is a napkin ring. The entire model should be hollow, in a general use of the term. When you say the bottom is hollow,...

    Important information is missing. What slicing program do you use? Can you post the STL file and the gcode file that is created by your slicer? Have you used the slicing program to view the layer...

    That falls within the 0.100 mm to 0.600 mm range, so yes, it's a good number for your nozzle size.

    There is indeed a correlation between nozzle diameter and layer height. It is common practice to use any layer thickness between a minimum, sometimes as small as 0.050 mm but no larger than...

    Wow, almost 200,000 downloads of that Ironman costume. Interesting note from the creator, "it's not comfortable!"

    Another option that you have, once you've located the "drop bed treelike supports" option would be to use Meshmixer's support feature to create supports that are perhaps less fragile or less dense or...

    If Tinkercad is too complex for a beginner to understand, I'm afraid that I don't have an answer. I've guided five year olds to use the program with minimal difficulty. Good luck.
