hello all,
I have been seeing this since yesturday, tried to find out what it is for a few hours today and still can't figure it out. At first glance it may seem like some random poly on the edge but checking the mesh the polys are not doubled. Also what doesn't seem to make sence is the irregularity isn't on all of the sections as the ring is the same section in a radial array! . . so if it were the mesh it would be on all the sections. Anybody seen this before?

I think it's a radiosity bug, try it with cg lights. It might have something to do with uv's too, try moving them around and see if it changes anything

merge points, delete all one and two point polys, unify polygons... check if there isn't one that faces the other way... in short, it does seem like mesh issue to me yes. Can you share the object?

I fixeed the issue last night, I think I was stressing the end section of the poly with an edge bevel, I extended the end points about a quarter inch and lopped of the excess . . seems to be working great at the moment.
Thanks for the insights . . .

That's a really cool design. May I ask what it is you're making?
