WIREFRAME - EXTRUSION - EXPLOSION! Tool Error

Hello Everyone,

When I use the WIREFRAME tool the results come out looking like an EXPLOSION. Instead of a Wire Frame as expected, It seems that many facets EXTRUDE from the original object (original geometry broken apart).

While some of my imported files result in a nice wireframe, most of my files result in this explosion effect.



I’ve attached a sample from a pasta scoop that seems to have “exploded.”

Using Blender 2.68a, Windows 8. I have a few files that convert to Wire Frame nicely but most produce this error. Not sure what’s going on. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,

Brent
