I am trying to create a box or room that has a slight thickness to the walls, with normals reversed on everything so you can always view the inside from the outside(with backface culling checked)

I have tried adding the solidify modifier to a box, then reversing the normals, but this doesn't work as expected. I then messed around with flipping normals manually by selecting the faces I want the normals flipped on, but this also didnt work. What other method is there? Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ You mean make the modifier no longer visible? I just tried. That might work fine in the blender editor, but I am trying to export to unity. So it needs to actually have all the normals facing the direction I want. $\endgroup$ – Program232323 Mar 11 '19 at 17:55
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the post cegaton. I dont know if its an exact duplicate, but checking "only rim" like that thread recommended seemed to do the trick. I didnt see that during my research $\endgroup$ – Program232323 Mar 11 '19 at 17:58

Check "Only Rim" within the solidify modifier. Make sure you also have "Flip normals" checked within the modifier as well.
