Cross Section Problem

nick_coppinsnick_coppins Member Posts: 9 ✭✭

This feels like it might be so simple I'm completely missing something. 

I've got a single sketch on the front plane and 3 revolves around a construction line that is vertical through the origin. 

When viewing the cross section through the front plane, I'm getting a wonky / angle thing, as shown. 

I re-created this same part studio twice, so either I'm making the same mistake (most likely) or something else is going on?

    it might be just an optical illusion because of the hatching

    anyway the link to the suspicious part requared for a certain conclusion

    The hatching is indeed creating an optical illusion. I'm encountering this optical illusion problem with my cross section too. Is there a way to turn off the hatching?
