Doing a "shell type" extrude gap appears between panels when smoothed


#1

hi
doing a “shell type” extrude gap appears between panels when smoothed
any techniques to bring panel edges together if doing lots of panels.

tried full crease on edge but seemed same though not sure if did correctly.
please see


thx

not sure what happens in zbrush but panel loop with no polish gives no gap when smoothed
seems to automatically create an overlap?

i think mayas extrude needs a bevel profile like nurbs surface

and in node editor connect same extrude node to all seperate geom shell panels
