hello there,

I need to figure out a way to bring up normals which a under surface level. Is there a vop system, or any other sop combination I can use to bring up normals which are under the surface and align them to the curvature of the topology.

thanks for all hints!

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but I've attached a file with some examples of setting normals, reversing normals, and grouping reversed normals.

Typically a facet sop with “Post-Compute Normals” checked on will have normals that orient the way you want.

If this isnt what you're looking for let me know and I'll try to help you out.

Cheers!
