Gmax line extrusion...Truck...Please see pic

Recommended Posts

I'm having a hard time getting the opposite side of my truck to appear. I've tried many many different things. I trace around the truck with the line tool. Then edit mesh in polygon mode and, as expected, the side extrudes...BUT, there is no opposite side...please see pic 2.I tried making a copy of the side that shows (having applied a material and mapped it 2-sided,and pasted it onto the missing side. It shows in Gmax fine, but when exported into FS, the truck is invisible from the opposite side.Is there any way to close off the opposite side after extruding from a line.Thanks,Adamhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/100577.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/100578.jpg

Excellent guys. Thanks very much. I'll try your suggestions.Toprob, "I go straight from closing the spline to Extrude on the Modifier List. Does this work for you?"That's what I was doing but no getting the opposite side.

It's just that you said "...Then edit mesh in polygon mode" which made me think you might have put in an extra step.

Actually Toprob, I got it working. Thanks. I completed an F150 ford and it looks great. Now I'm making a smaller car and I can't seem to map it. I'll get it!Thanks man,Adam
