View Full Version : tight edge on smoothed triangle

07-19-2010, 07:48 PM

im trying to create a an object which contains a triangle. i try to smooth it but i need to keep the edge tighten up. here is my geometry:

here its zoomed in

when i try to add the edge ring automatically (im using maya) the edges gone nuts in the triangle. if i did it manually, theres a point where one egde did not fit in into the triangle hence its a little bit messt.
im kinda curious is there any trick i can use so the edges will be neatly distributed in the triangle.
any idea?

thanks in advance

Try extruding that face and scaling it in. That will create a new edge loop that keeps the shape of the face.
