I am new to blender.
I am trying to render a fountain pen nib (a parametric surface given by a set of three complex formulae) .
I have imported the *obj file to blender, and then extruded along local normals using proportional editing on. This gives me a completely broken mesh.
or with x ray on :
Obviously, the mesh is broken.
I have seen this question. But it seems that one has to manually correct all the faces.
Is there an automatic way to correct the mesh? I tried :
Edit mode >
as well as :
decimate geometry and
delete loose. None of them helped. What can I do now?
