Loading the part up in blender, translating it by the X Y Z indicated in Repetier host, and then putting the 3d cursor at the specified coordinates:


Nothing suspcious?    Rereading: it said “near edge”, so there should be an edge between those two locations.  Because the X and Z stay constant, its along the Y axis.   So it must be one of these guys:


Aha – I think I found it.   There’s actually several vertices here. Ctrl-+ a few times to grow selection, Shift H to hide unselected, and then move some stuff around.


Delete the vertex, look for holes and fix:


Send it back over to slicer, and try again:


Not winning today.

Update: didn’t seem to have any problems with slic3r 1.01.  Now I have to figure out how to configure Repetier Host to talk to a new slic3r install on the computer. (Update: very easy. Tell RH which directory slic3r lives in, and it handles the rest).
