What was that originally supposed to be?

Looks like the normals are fucked. I don't work with 3dsMax, but I assume there's a "recalculate normals" or "fix normals" function?

This shouldn't be happening, I'm pretty sure you made a mistake somewhere. Did you check your uvs?

Fucking clients - They are cunts! - short of normals modifiter or joining each face... - might be quicker to remodel it than sort it all out? its a relatively simple object - I'm assuming its just a viual still or video output you are working towards?

I feel your pain OP, I swear everybody has to go through this at some point. I haven't touched CAD, so I'm not sure what the process is on their end, but there MUST be a better way to do this.

Drop a Normal modifier on that.

CAD-bro here, what program are you importing the files from?
