Assembler is being rendered insideout in your hand #2549

The Molecular Assembler seems to have an issue being rendered in the players' hands. This is without mods like OptiFine installed.

In-world assemblers are being rendered fine, but when holding it inside your hands it kind of looks like the quads are being drawn in the reverse order, or some other OpenGL screw-up.

The assembler uses a normal json model. No idea how there could screw up on our side.

@shartte The fix to lighting does not seem to affect it.

The problematic part is this in code snippet in ItemRenderer (vanilla):

boolean flag = this.itemRenderer.shouldRenderItemIn3D(heldStack) && this.isBlockTranslucent(block);

        if (flag)

        this.itemRenderer.renderItem(heldStack, entitylivingbaseIn, transform, leftHanded);

        if (flag)
