    Hi all - hope someone can help....

    First map and I have a rendering issue - after spending ages going through the pointfile and removing all leaks (a great lesson in "do it right in the first place!") I started my map and saw this jutting out if the roof of my Sewer Junction room...

    In hammer there is no problem.....

    I saw this in the pointfile...

    Try deleting the arc and recompile it. If it works make a new one until it works. You have some kind of leak but this can be caused by bad brushwork like that arc.
    You could try the sdk beta it fixed a bug on a map of a friend of my.

    Some of the brushwork in your complex geometry might contain vertices not aligned to the grid. During compile, these vertices might be adjusted to prevent invalid geometry (primarily non planar faces), resulting in the odd shapes you see. How are you creating your complex geometry? Use the vertex tool to make sure all vertices are aligned to the grid.
