    Hey guys, I'm a newb with 3D modeling and just started out trying to model a case for my second portable however I seem to have run into an issue or maybe it's just me. I'm using FreeCAD for Mac and this is what the case looks like in FreeCAD:

    But when I export the file to an STL it looks like this:

    Did I do something wrong?

    You may have not exported the entire piece, see if selecting everything before exporting will fix it (I don't use FreeCAD so IDK for sure)

    Can you post the STL file? I want to see how it slices in other programs to see if that's the problem.

    Thank you guys for your response and even your willingness to help! I actually just switched to Fusion 360 and found it way better than FreeCAD, so I was able to fix the issue. Thank you anyway guys!
