Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi 2147,

This is not a bug but a simple fix with you model in your modeling software. You'll need to open the model in your modeling software and flip that particular face that is causing the issue. It looks like you're using 3Ds Max. Go into to polygon mode and select that particular face(s) and in the selection bar on the right and select Flip.

You can verify this by opening the mesh in the mesh viewer and for that particular face if you click the Normals button on the toolbar you should see the green arrows pointing towards the inside of the model vs away from the model.

Thank you!
