Black stains ?
show user profile  vikki sixx
Hi Guys,

I create 3 splines, then with a little minipulation I merge this and eventually create 1 spline. I then want to convert this spline shape into a solid object, so I use lathe. However, when I apply lathe to it, the object created is perfect but it renders these dark "stains" and not a smooth surface.

Any ideas ?

PS: I cannot post a picture at this time ....

Thanks
Vic

Sounds like smoothing groups are not correct. add a 'Smooth' modifier and hit 'autosmooth'
