ReverseNormals and Union

Recommended Posts

I want not only the tire, but the tire threads to have their normals reversed and all boolean unionized together.  Up to now, this is only what I've been able to achieve; the threads are boolean unionized with the tire, but the normals of the tire are inverted ?

then reverse them after the loop? Just have them in the group?

Reversing them after the loop just makes the threads normals, inverted; while the tires normals are correct. 

Instead of both the tire and the threads normals facing out.

The easier way: Before Boolean, fix the normals on both parts.

The brute-force way: use VDB to force single geometry, add normals, and attribcopy or attribtransfer to your geo.
