setNormals

Synopsis

setNormals(normalsMode)

The setNormals() operation sets the normals of the current shapes' geometry to the desired mode.

Parameters

The soft and auto modes require disconnected shapes to be combined and duplicate vertices to be merged in order to compute vertex normals using adjacent face normals.

The conform mode is not successful is every case.

If the conform mode is not successful consider the following options:
