I am trying to create organic structures with subd tools. To do so, I’ve flipped the surface and reconnected again to the surface’s opposite side - think of the Mobius strip principle - resulting in normals with opposite directions.
And so when I try “offsetsubd” on the surface to give the structure thickness, naturally, it doesn’t work. Around the areas where normals face opposite directions encounter, the offset creates intersections between the “inside” and “outside” surfaces.
So my question is: would anyone know a way to give this surface thickness without having these intersections? Is it possible to do it from the surface that I have already modelled or should I approach this kind of shape differently from the very beginning?
