Flips the normals of all faces of the selected object.


  1. Select shape.
  2. Choose PartReverse shapes from the top menu.
  3. A reversed shape is created as a new separate object.



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/solid invisible
  2. selecting the reversed shape/solid
  3. change "lighting" in the "View"-tab from "Two side" to "One side"
  4. the shape/solid will turn black → you are looking at the back of the faces
