No

Draw a horizontal surface with z > 0, extrude it up, the walls and roof are correctly recognized but the floor remains a roof.

    I did a quick test and it does appear that SketchUp 7.0.10247 does do
    some tricky stuff with faces. Faces on z = 0 do seem to have downward
    normals irregardless of the order the vertices are drawn in. Also,
    normals of new faces are set to match existing, co-planar faces if the
    two share an edge. Is this behavior documented somewhere and is it
    possible to alter it?

    Thanks a lot,
    Dan

    Hello, I have started to look into an issue in an existing plugin and
    am having trouble identifying if the following behavior is coming from
    SketchUp or the plugin. When I draw a horizontal face using the line
    tool on any plane other than z = 0 the face normal follows the right
    hand rule according to the order that I draw the points of the face
    polygon. When I draw this face on z = 0 the normal is always
    downward, no matter which way I input the points. Is this behavior
    expected from SketchUp (without any plugins)?

    Thanks a lot,
    Dan

    Is there anything to be done here beside documentation?
