Clip geo Solaris not fully working

I am trying to get the clip geo to work in solaris, but it is not "capping" the whole it creates. 


I have added 2 images. One in standard houdini, one in solaris. As you can see, the standard works fine, but the same style setup in solaris doesn't seem to work how I need it. Anyone have any idea what's going on?


If you need more info, I'm happy to post it.

Houdini 19.5.640

You need to make the mesh double sided - if you're using a cube/sphere LOP then they have a 'Double Sided' parm by default, but for SOP geometry you would use the Mesh Edit LOP like so

Omg, I swear I had tested that, but that did do the trick. Thanks!

I might have spoken too soon. Attached are some more images. I cant share what the project is or the houdini, but as you can see, the standard houdini render seems to work just fine, everything gets capped nicely. 


The solaris version however still gets broken. The geometry isnt the nicest, but definitely isnt horrible (converted CAD data).


Any ideas why its getting broken in solaris but not in Houdini.
