3ds max 2011 design question
show user profile  cortlando
It's been some years since I've used this program. I'm working mostly with editable meshes (edit mesh & edit poly modifiers). I can't for the life of me remember how you make the back side (non normal) of a face invisible.

Any help would be most appreciated.

I should add that I'm looking for a global setting so that all backs of faces are invisible.

Object Properties / Backface Cull.

For global control you can check "Backface Culll on Object Creation" in the Viewports tab in Prefs.

n/p, another "global" approach via maxscript....

Turns all object culling off, easy to modify to turn on as well.
