This function allows you to set the double-sidedness of an element's model. When an element's model is double-sided, it's back facing triangles become visible.

Possible uses of double-sidedness are: Elimination of invisible walls, using buildings as enclosures, using inverted landmasses as large pits or to make cave networks. It can also remove the need to add extra triangles to custom models when trying to make them appear solid from all directions.
