Some facets are always lit up

Some facets in the attached drawing are always lit up when rendered (not Draft).  It's only the ones that face the -Z direction.

I've turned off all the lights and there are no Luminances that I can find.  It happens in Quality and Advanced, either Lightworks or RedSDK.

Any idea how to fix this?

You have a render scene luminance point light,  if you don't want it that bright, turn down its intensity,  in RedSDK, turning it down to something like 4, should be ok.  I have not tried Lightworks render but something similar in LW may work OK.

Or change the RSL point to something else like sky.  Or move the point from its position below the object.
