Wireframe if it does help.

Are the uv's overlapping where that lock is. I would do an exploded bake, do those locks and rings separately and combine in photoshop.
>>
Uvs look fucked, possibly baked wrong.

reduce raycast when baking

So how do I change raycast

As with literally any other artifact problem during baking:
USE A CAGE.

Will try.
Thanks

This doesn't work for me
>>
>>516479
Either UV's are poorly mapped: they are overlapping

or
Cage is shit
>>
If 3ds, clone model > push modifier > 0.3 > export as cage.obj > add to xnormal > bake > good normals
>>
>>516479
as other anno said ray disatnce or cage
google normal projection cage to understand hwo it works
basically what the program doues is inflates the mesh by an amount, pretty sure xnormal had an option to see teh cage in their sucky ass viewer, so you can actually tell if its not too bog or too small and dosnt rab the high poly

basically if you see double geometry, your cage is too big, if you see gray spots on normal map you cage is too small

you should also google blowing up a model for bake, you jsut move eahc part away on a dublicate so no geometry interference happens

Could anyone please check my uvs, I think they are correct but I'm not a experienced 3d modeler.
>>
>>518265
Th problem is not just the uvs, you gotta do an "exploded" bake.
Baking is pretty simple, just read EVERYTHING in this page and you will master it:

Explode your model when baking, just take each part that is overlapping and not part of the same mesh, and then move them away from the model THEN bake.
