Re: Multiple SurfaceGridSeries3D and transparency

Hello Pasi,

I now see the problem even with my changes. Not sure why you didn't mention this first. So no alpha blending. Should mention this in the documentation.

Vary the transparency of the middle surface and you wont be able to see either the surface below or above, depending on what order they were added. If you notice there is a slider used to vary the alpha transpa...
