I'm new at this, but trying to use sketchup 7 to do a very simple tray. I keep getting Inverted normals errors, but I can't locate them. Can someone help?

Hi dfbills, the problem appeared that many polygons in your mesh were not properly attached

I've left the original in tact and made a cleaner version in the attached file

I'm still getting inverted normals- even on your file. Ugh.

the file I upped had both your original and my fixed one because I wasn't sure how perfect you wanted it to be regarding measurement (I made it by eye)

here's a clean one which I tested first;)

Check the measurements first tho mate;)
