Major alignment issues with naked edges...

Thanks Michael.

One of the fundamental problems with some of these product models I'm getting these days, is that they're not particularly well put together upstream. So when I get them, I find that there are substantial surfacing and edge issues, which are leading to the naked edges when I export the meshed .OBJ files. That, is the primary reason why I'm having issues like what I posted above. I've tried many things, including your great tip from a while back, about scaling down the problematic parts, re-joining them, then scaling back up. But unfortunately, I still have a ton of naked edges. I hope to convey some info to the designers soon, but they're in Asia, so I may wind up with limited opportunity to plead my case with them.
