if i make a shape out of a bezier curve then extrude it, there are no faces on the front and back so you can see through to the background. Is there a way to get a face there or to get a similar effect with another object?
Use a mesh with SubSurf on, it is very powerfull and you can add/delete faces as you like.
thanks for that. I’ve never seen used that before, but it actually answers a couple of other questions i had too.
If you extrude bezier curves, activate the button FRONT and BACK. Do NOT activate “3D”. When 3D is activated, front and back are never rendered.
Didn’t know that myself! :x Just had a look into the Blender Guide…
:-? … I forgot: If you change the Front / Back / 3D - buttons, you have to go into and out of edit mode once to apply the changes (Select the bezier and Tab Tab).
