More volumes than expected

bedders

HI,


I was expecting (hoping for) a 2 volume object but ended up with 6, is there an easy way to view volumes to discover the problem?  Incidentally, Shapeways sees it as one object. 


Regards


Richard

Can you provide a little more context or elaboration?

It's a object that should be one internal volume, but there must be sections that are not properly attached. What I was hoping for is a viewer that allows me to highlight each volume in turn to show me where the problems are.

It is much easier to give better feedback if you show your code.

OpenSCAD cannot know your intention, i.e. it does not know what things
'should' be. Most often it is not an error that a result consists of
several parts (i call them 'lumps'). As far as I know there is no direct
way in OpenSCAD to enumerate isolated parts.
