Description

Flips the normals of all faces of the selected object.

Usage

  1. Select shape.
  2. Go to the menu Part → Reverse shapes.
  3. A reversed shape is created as a new separate object.

Notes

By executing this command, FreeCAD flips the normals of all faces of the shape/solid.

You can verify this by

  1. Making all other objects but the reversed shape invisible.
  2. Selecting the reversed shape.
  3. Change ViewLighting from "Two side" to "One side".
  4. The shape will turn black, meaning that you are now looking at the back of the faces.
