View Full Version : Simple model - anyone know why background shows through at parts ?

04-06-2009, 11:44 AM
Hello All;
I probably have some setting wrong or doing something simple incorrectly but does anyone know why my background shows through certain parts of my model and if so, do you know what I can do to correct the problem ? I did some investigating but nothing I have been able to find yet resolves this problem. See attached illustration. Thanks. Tim

Polygons are one-sided by default, meaning they will show through like that if not viewed from the side that the normal is facing. You can hit F5, select the surface of the cylinder and check double sided.


extrude the geometry inward to add additional polygons that face inward.

Thanks, RollerJesus;
I knew all about the one sided polygons (by default). It just didn't occur to me that this would cause them to show through like that. I'll use one of your suggestions. Thanks.
