  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.


    Read our full announcement for more information and let us know if you have any questions.

    When importing a FBX file, Unity is able to detect self-intersecting polys and outputs a warning to the Console, for example:
    I would find it useful if you expose the functionality to detect self-intersecting polygons. This would allow me to write a tool that checks for these kind of issues, without having the need to trigger a reimport.

    I could add this to our data validation checks then. Otherwise we only see such issues on an import, which then people often forget there is an issue.

    The problem I've got with that message is that it doesn't tell me which polygon is causing the problem. Can you point me in the right direction to identify which on of the polys on my Blender model might be the issue?

    Just a thought: If Unity would highlight any discarded polys, that would be vastly more useful.

    Could I ignore this warning?
