A Normal question

The normal can point any which way. Doesn’t matter. When I do this, I just create a single normal pointing Z=1 and use it for all faces/points. Then, when I am done I GenerateNormals.

If you want to set the normal yourself, the normal should point away from the face.


I guess I’m not normal… <!– s:) –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!– s:) –>

Can the dummy normal set up prior to creating a face be in any direction, or must it point correctly?

A similar question for AddPointAndNormal.

Or, can GenerateNormals be used to create correct ones after faces and points have been associated?

If I’m modeling in single-sided mode what is the convention for the nomal direction? Is face point order used?
Thanks in advance.
