I was shown a warning reading: The following surface or surface bound may have incorrect orientation.

The surface it points to is a rounded surface.

What does it exactly mean please?

Regards,

That message means that the normal vector of the surface is pointing the
wrong direction. The easiest thing to do is use the 'Surface Flip' command
on the offending body in Design Modeler. If you are in Classic, it is the
ENORM command.

Sorry, mistake.

Should be "/PSYMB, ADIR, 1"

Thanks Neil.

But, what will be affected if the normal vector is pointing in the wrong direction please?
