Missing surface in 3D pdf

    Exported a file to 3D pdf and see a surface is missing. Only missing when viewed from the inside though. From the outside all is fine. Is this happening to anyone else? How to remedy?

    Not that I have a remedy but I confirm the missing surfaces condition.

    I have seen it. And yes, a different view normally has everything.

    Also normally, the view that is a problem is the view I want to use.

    Try "3D PDF Reader" apps with your Android mobile.

    Historically this has always worked with Adobe Acrobat Reader (which was the recommend pdf reader). Alibre need to look into this and confirm what is happening and advise the way forward. I can't forward a file to someone and hope they have the patience to find a reader that works.

    Can you send the native file and PDF to support? The PDF alone won't help.

    It wouldn't be fun otherwise ;)

    Can also confirm that surface is missing in my viewer as well. Also noticed the two ribs you've got there are missing a back surface

    Same trouble in my Laptop Acrobat viewer. Hope soon support finds the issue.
