Why this face of a mesh is empty ?
« on: June 28, 2012, 12:13:32 PM »
Hello,
I've use a a mesh to distribute my grass. I don't know why but a face, only one of the mesh, don't want my grass.

An idea ?
Thank you

It would be a normals issue, but the viewport seems correct.

Please, send us a test scene to check it.

Effectively, it is a inverted normal problem.

To fix the problem, you have to flip the normals of the failing faces using the "Flip Normal Mode" button in the editable mesh roll-up and clicking in the faces.
