hi Guys

here you can see a subpatched object with no failure


after dragging a while, i tried to subPatch the model, and this is the result (may be i used a wrong keyboard shortcut during the dragging time). can anybody tell me what happend here? the curves are not smoth anymore, but all points are merged!

thanks 4 help

your mesh has maybe polygons with less then 3 points or some points arent merged or something similar.
Bring it into modeller, press m, after that press w and check your polygons, if there are some with less then 3 points, select them by clicking + and delete them.^^

ohhh my god..... i don't understand this.....

make a box object and turn on subPatch... so far so good, the box looks smooth.... turn off subPatch, then make c (copy) and v (paste) into the same layer. the 2 boxes have now exactly the same coordinates ....... now press m (merge point). 8 points will be mergen. turn on subPatch and you will see the hard edges. can you explain me why??

have found the problem...... if you merge points, the polygons are not realy deleted. press I (****+ i) and everiting will be ok!!
