I am trying to add a plane to my internal mesh and it seems to have inverted normals. Is this a problem with my graphics card or am I doing something wrong?

Greetings Jonathan,

I've seen this before... check the instructions on this thread: Dark areas in paraview - there is a solution in post #5

Best regards,
