I have been working on a model of a weapon and am currently working on baking my normal maps. however after it is finished and I import it into substance designer for texturing I get this shadow on the model. I have checked that my normals are facing the proper way, checked for any doubles. to no avail

Why is my model doing this, and how can I fix it?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you also add an image of your object in wireframe mode? (Or better yet - in shaded editmode) $\endgroup$ – TLousky Dec 14 '15 at 10:33

  • $\begingroup$ The issue you have is that you have non-planar faces. Some vertices on your quads are in different planes, creating a deformations that cannot be represented cleanly with the existing topology. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Dec 14 '15 at 21:46
  • $\begingroup$ Im confused as neither link really helped me any. some of the faces that are completely flat are having this issue as well. so im not sure if it's a non-planar issue. Also there arent any ngons in this model either. $\endgroup$ – nathan rivera Dec 17 '15 at 7:08
