Is there any way I can select only the "visible" polygons from the perspective view in modeler?

I have a model that I imported from another app and a lot of the polygon normals are fliped the wrong way.

It is a very complicated model and there is no way that I can do this manualy.

Perhaps and LScript or plugin exists to "select visible polygons"?

Doesn't "align polygons" work in this case ?

No, it does not...

As I stated, it is a very complicated model. Align polygons does make some changes but it has no way of really knowing what direction all of the polygon normals should face. That tool gets confused very quickly when it comes to complicated models.

I tried the FaceIt plugin and it seems to work fairly well, I was just hoping that something even better might be out there.

'Align' should also works with selections. Try selecting groups of Polys and then running align, rather than doing the whole object at once.
