Default cannot create a triangle over a mesh surface

Hi..

With Ac3D I createt a surface, lets say a circle with a hole. Then I export it to a x-File. With my application I can load this file and create the surface.Ok..

Then I try to create a triangle over this surface. But everytime it is beeing createt under the mesh-surface (No difference when I change the cordinates).

What do I do false?Any idea?

Thanks...

No experience with .x files so this just a guess. And I assume that this is what you are doing :

1. you create a circle with hole in AC3D
2. create a triangle in AC3D
3. export the file containing the 2 pieces in .x format
4. load that file into your program.

If the above is correct, open the hierarchy window (Tools-->Hierarchy View) and move the triangle to the top of the list of objects (right click on triangle object in the hierarchy window -->move to head).

Now export the file ... see what happens. No idea if it will help ... just a guess that the position in the hierarchy (the order of objects) in the .x file maybe important.
