View Normals In Blender 2.8


(Tom Hunt) #1

Hi!
So, since moving to 2.8 I’ve had a lot of issues with staying ontop of normals.
I know in the Overlay menu you can view normals like so:

However, for more complicated models this isn’t so useful. I want to be able to view normals the same way I did in Blender 2.79, where one side of a face would be darker (representing the back of the face).

How do I do this in 2.8?

In the same Overlays menu there is an option called “Face orientation” – you’ll get blue for “front” and red for “back”. Does that help?

It’s not what I was looking for but it definitely helps, thanks a lot!
