    It looks like a graphical glitch to me. There are a few things to check here.

    - Double check you are in-fact using solid bodies and not surfaces
    - Refresh the view (ctrl+f5)
    - Restart the browser
    - Try another browser
    - Link your document so others can see if they experience the same error.
    - Reboot PC
    - Update graphics card driver
    - Update browser
    - Contact support using the "?" menu in the top right corner

    You should also run the system check (under ? menu) to check your browser and graphics card are fully supported.

    This has happened to some of my students in the past when they have used MS Exploder or Edge instead of a more standards compliant browser.

    There is also an outstanding regression in Chrome that is affecting section view in this way on some GPUs (mainly Intel chipsets).  The issue has been reproduced on their end and should be fixed in Chrome 77.  See https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=970532 for more information.

    works fine in FireFox.
    Problem still exists in chrome even after restarting the browser and updating graphics drivers.

    @dhiraj_patil - Chrome will fix their bug in version 77 as @Evan mentioned above.
