View Full Version : Transparency and solid objects? - Metal grates

If you have a sqaure and on the top and bottom you make half the surface transparent, you can see right through the square, except there are no edges inside the sqaure.

Is there a way of making the object solid, or something, so instead of seeing into the object (and through non-double sided surfaces) you see through the object and inside there appears to be sides?

Obviously the easy way to do this would be to cut out the centre using boolean, however I'm making a metal grate platform. I can't cut out the ~3600 holes to make a single platform so I need to be creative.

If anyone has any other methods of creating a metal grate platform I'd be glad to hear them though.
