Weird issue with Substance painter 2018.3.3

Offline / Send Message
Hi there, 

I've been scratching my head for hours trying to figure out what's wrong with my model. I have imported my model from 3ds max into substance but half of it is sort of mirrored / the normals have been flipped. There is no reason as far as I can tell for this in Max, I've even tried flipping the normals of the culprit objects themselves and that doesn't solve it. Anyone got any ideas?

    Try using Reset Xform on the affected objects (might as well do it to everything) before exporting to Painter.

    This was even after resetting the xform, and trying to reset the xform on a box that I created at 0,0,0 and attached the object to. I found out that the issue here was that I had used the mirror tool in 3DS max rather than the mirror MODIFIER, which creates new objects with negative transforms and therefore flips the normals. All I had to do is use the mirror modifier instead of the tool. Thanks for your reply though :)
