Add Functionality to display Normals in Model Viewer

For the model Viewer it would be helpful to be able to display (/Add/Calculate) Normals (face vertex, etc)..

this will assist in simple debugging

    Hi Larry,

    As Shaun mentioned, the model viewer can show the vertex and face normal, although we currently don't support add/calculate the normal. Thanks for the suggestion! We'll look into this in the future.

    In the FBX editor, there's a toolbar button that to me looks kind of like a scroll partially unrolled with a triangle to the right of it. Click on the triangle, then the View menu, then Show Face Normals or Show Vertex Normals.
