Default Geometry changes after OBJ8 Export to WED

Hi all,

After fixing one problem, my next one was awaiting me...

I'm looking to export a hill shaped object into X Plane 11 via WED. After applying a texture in AC3D and exporting to OBJ8, WED displays it as if it's missing surfaces. Please see below images.

I simply generated a rectangle with 2 sub-divisions which was divided into an 8x8 grid. I then adjusted the heights of the vertices and smoothed them at the end. The object is closed with no holes and has a thickness of 0.5m.

If anyone knows why WED is displaying a poor representation of this object, perhaps caused when exporting to OBJ8, that would be very helpful.

Thank you in advance!

Check normals (setting surfaces to single-sided is a quick way to check) and you may need to triangulate all surfaces.
