Adjust Normals

Use the Normals tool to display and reverse the normals of elements or surfaces. The orientation of element normals can also be adjusted. The normal of an element is determined by following the order of nodes of the element using the right-hand rule.

From the Elements ribbon, click the Normals tool.
