Is it possible to invert object normals in a script?

Well.. it’s all in the title <!– s:) –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!– s:) –>

I presume you’re talking about the face normals and not the vertex normals? (i.e. the invert operation)

From a script to invert a face, just reverse the order in which the points are defined on a face.

But once the object is created with all points and faces?

Inverting a shape can be acommplished by reversing the order of the points on each face. The easiest way is to just create a new object and add each face in opposite direction, then clear the original shape and add the new shape back to the original. At least that’s how I do it.

Thanks. I think I’ll leave this to 3DC invert operation.
