Hi, I'm making an electric clock but I'm having trouble making the hole whithout damaging the mesh. There is a pinching occuring and the mesh becomes too complicated to work with and rough. The software is 3ds max.

haha well scrap my last idea... my solutions was to add more geometry to control the corners more. Usually with curved surface areas i find adding geometry helps alot more.

hope this helps.
