Unexpected result from creating a face. Need help.


I’m just trying to do a simple design, but when I try to create the faces for my model it’s a mess. I don’t understand why I’m getting this result. It has been a while since I’ve used blender, but I don’t remember having the same issue. I create a face and extrude but it goes from this orange color when it’s highlighted to a dark black with no detail when it’s not. Any thoughts? I’ll include a screenshot to illustrate what I’m talking about. Thank you :slight_smile:


No blend file supplied with your post !!!

Hard to say without a file, but could possibly mean that your normals are flipped. Extrusions made in the direction of the original object normal will have flipped polygons, while those that are made in the opposite direction will have faces pointing in the correct direction. However, again it’s hard to tell without the file.
