Crap ! What went wrong ?
show user profile  Neomace
I've made this beer pump by creating a spline and adding a lathe modifier to get the effect of a round shaped handle but when it's rendered the handle looks like it's not part of the pump.

What did I do wrong. Don't really want to spend hours starting again.

Many thanks for any advice you maybe able to give.

Kind regards

Inverted normals.

Select handle, press 4, ctrl+a, then "flip."

Sorry you lost me, ;p

I've isolated the handle, pressing 4 doesn't seem to do anything and the only thing I can find close to flip is mirror.

Thanks for helping me Herfst1 I really do appreciate it.

Kind regards

Sorry, in more words:

The faces of your handle are inside out, you need to flip them. If you select the handle and choose "face" sub-object mode (pressing 4) you can then select all the faces by pressing ctrl+a. You will find a button on the right called "flip," press it.

Oh crap, I've done something !

I've gone to another part of my scene to move some vertex but the move tool is pointing at the diagonals . Sorry to be a pain, I'm very new tow 3DS Max and I'm just learning from tutorials online and YouTube so I'm not sure of how it all works.

This is what I mean.

Sweet Thanks.

So do I need to do this every time I make something in the same way.

I.e. Spline add lathe modifier?

You only need to do this when faces are flipped... obviously.

Neomance, can you please check the Sig rules, I think your sig is too tall.

I was just about to reply with the same comment, I thought it was part of his question at first :)

Please resize so that it's 150px tall or smaller.
