Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello, I know that it's not very kind to simply reask the questions but I'm dealing with optical materials that are sticked to each other quite often. I could really use some support on that topic. As already described it's not a matter of overlapping faces and also not a matter of volume/face norma...

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello all,

I wonder whether there are any further actions on that topic.

I mean now its clear that is not a matter of overlapping faces...
Also not a matter of wrong volume definition...

Kind regards

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello Then where is the volume contact if "One of the two faces that are shared by both volumes is deleted"? Imagine a cube and delete one of it's faces. The result is kind of a shell, like this. cube_shell_1.jpg All remaining face normals point to air. And another cube, that is turned int...

Re: Light Rays Altered After Creating Copy of the Glass Material (BUGS REPORT?)

Hi Jan,

this one looks really very strange...

Shall I open an issue on github?
At the moment this thread seems to be lost among all thoser other topics.

Once more congratulations for your test scene - it really shows beauty of light.

With kind regards.

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello, if you set distances to zero overlapping surfaces There are no overlapping surfaces in that model. One of the two faces that are shared by both volumes is deleted (or better said: has never been imported). The remaining surface (marked in red) carries an interior and exterior volume as mentio...

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello, I've updated the scenes with a slit (air gap). Both deliver the result that I would expect while having this air gap. This is the result of the light path scene (hope this one works out of the box): t2_mod_slit.jpg t2_mod_slit.blend This is the result of the two plastic parts: test_scene_slit...

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello, the appearance looks better, but still not right. The material edges look strange to me. Also strange is that that the exterior needs to be defined even if it's idential with world volume (that should be air by default with IOR 1). current_setup.jpg Do we agree that the light path through the...

Re: Two clear volumes in face contact

Hello all, thanks for taking care of me. I know that artifacts happens with overlapping surfaces. As I said in my previous post strange artifacts happens if two surfaces overlap. You can not have overlapping surfaces, you have to use a single surface and appropriate interior/exterior volumes. As you...
