Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

Robot Volume 1 - Harness video 15

Hello Everyone,

I have grouped and 4 components of the harness and 'Duplicated Special'. All works perfectly however the copied objects are coloured BLACK.

Can anyone tell me why this has happened and how may I change it?

FYI - I tried reversing the duplicated objectives + applying a new material. Nothing worked.

the normal's need reversing

Select the offending object or specific faces.

go to the modeling menu and under Mesh Display choose Reverse

Thanks Myth,

I think my Maya 2015 is playing games on me. I tired all options, including your suggestion. Not working.

I ended up going the long way, mirrored the harness, separated the objects from parent then manually moved the components into place.

Thanks again for your suggestion, I'm sure that will work for someone else.
