Select objects or components to delete. // // Error: polyToSubdiv1 (Poly To Subdiv Node): One or more edges is nonmanifold. // Nonmanifold geometry cannot be converted to a subdivision surface. // To clean up nonmanifold edges, use Polygons->Cleanup with the nonmanifold option. // // Error: Command polyToSubdiv failed. Open Script Editor for details. // " my model is perfectly cleaned up ! i dont know what this word means "nonmanifold"
