Problems with normals

I am working on a model of a wooden log with a “spiked” end. I create a cone and and extruded the end. At the tip of the log there is a “hard line” illustatrated on the attached image.

I did the usual remove doubles and flip normals commands. but the hard line is still there. Is there an editing technique that i have overlooked?

Please help.


I ran into the same problem myself about a month ago. To fix this, you’re going to want to go to the Editing Tab (F9), the Mesh panel, and press the No V. Normal Flip button.


thanx for the quick reply. i tell you, the blender community is the best!
