Opacity issues with model exported from segmentations module

mfolson
Hi all,

I am attempting to create skull models from MR data in both the editor and
segment editor modules. So far, I've had better luck using the segmentation
tools to accomplish this. The problem I'm having now is that I would like to
export the segmentation to a model node for quick viewing, however the
exported models have odd transparency features. For example, the outside of
the skull will be semi-transparent but the inside of the skull will appear
solid even though it is made from a single segment. Thus when viewing the
overall skull model, I see the inside curvature instead of the outside.

I have tried changing opacity settings before and after exporting to a model
node, but the results have so far been the same. Am I missing a setting or
is this just a drawback to exporting the segmentation? I've attached some
sample images showing the correct model (using the create surface feature)
and the problem model.

Thanks,
Matt
