View Full Version : sharp corners/edges whilst using mesh smooth

12 December 2004, 02:41 PM
hello, how can you maintain a sharp corner or edge while using mesh smooth?

i am currently modelling a car, however cannot understand how other people have sharp straight edges even after applying a mesh smooth?

see my car looks ok, but there are no sharp edges! making it look weird!

please help

just add more detail and move the edge near to one another at the position u want it to be sharp... not sure if u get wat i mean....

Sounds app specific. What program are you using?

Just cut another edge right next to the other.. then there will be a sharp edge on your car! =)
