Hi all,
I just got my packages a few days early and it was like Christmas!
Rest assured they're only prototypes, but where did this missing material go?
Is it support material that got dissolved? Is it a modeling issue?

I'm creating the shapes in Houdini. The lines are just tubes.
Should I add more detail?
Should they have hard edges?

Probably a model issue, like inverted normals.
Check the rendering (2D ou 3D visualisation) in the object page: what you see there is usually what you get.


So many things to design, so little time...

You have two vertices that are overlapping, but they are only coincident endpoints of two splines. Weld them together and they will be one continuous curve.

Ah ha! I thought it might be something like that.
I will fuse my ends from now on, lol
That makes sense. Thanks Very Happy
