    some polygons transparent?

    hi
    i have lw3d 2019.0.3..
    some polygons of the extruded surface renders transparent..
    they were extruded from a flat shape created by boolean subtracted other objects..
    in texture layout they look correct, but render transparent
    anyone know why?
    thanks

    Pictures and wireframe images help massively when trying to help... any chance of showing them?
    Extrude tools don't always extrude a face on both sides of the mesh when you extrude, so you may just have a missing polygon or something?

    A first step to troubleshooting may be to update to the current 2019.1.5.

    Boolean operations may cause some flipped or non-planar polygons. Are you certain neither of those are an issue?
