craszy normals

hi

check this:

as you can see the normals are fine along the center of the tubing but are completly wrong at both ends. somehow the are aligned along one axis.
recalculating the normals does not help at all. actualy when i say recal for outside the normals are facing inside.

any help?

Last time I saw that was 2.35:

He took the picture down but the effect was exactly the same as you have shown.

This happens to me if I have a non-manifold mesh. Maybe you have some interior faces?

mh, guess thats a bug, i checked the mesh. the mesh is clean.
funny thing is when i cut away all faces wich have wrong normals and extrude from a good edge than the new extrusion shows also bad normals.

i guess the bug is still present.

well i remodeled the tubing.

Have you removed doubles perhaps?

sure i did that! i just checked the complet mesh!
