Any tips how to flip the merged polys in one step, or better still, produce them in the correct direction the first time .. ?

Reduce Polys tool (Reduce Polys+ doesn't like the model for some reason)
LW 9.3 UB Modeler

Thanks in advance ...

Not a opengl problem?

Walfridson - No, I selected two of the polys to try to show it (I guess it's not so visible), but the normals are pointing down. If I flip them it looks fine .. I am looking for a "don't have to select 200 separate polygons individually" solution ...

The Align tool is your friend.

Thanks Ben .. good point. Have been experimenting in the meantime with the poly reduction tools (make quads!!!) in AccuTrans .. quite cool ... thanks again, MicroMouse :) .. best 20 USD I ever spent ...

Still confused why it happen int he first place, but could be my model. Want to do it in LW, but need to use AccuTrans anyway (DEM info involved ...)
