View Full Version : WHat?! Object won't smooth?! Quick Q...

Howdie all,
I just can't understand this, but for some reason... My object won't smooth when I check the smooth box!? Yes, I am working on the right surface (have even tried to make new ones).
-Is it the poly's? Why will the colors/diffuse/etc change, but it just won't smooth?!?! :help:

here are a couple of reasons why your object won't smooth. The first obvious one is to make sure you have the viewport set to smooth shade or above.

Next, if you are making a round object be sure and give it enough segments for a snooth curve. The smooth setting won't have an effect on the geometry, only on the appearence of the surface.

You can also check the smoothing angle.

I have an object with many curve, mostly square curves, some pentagons, octagons, and so forth, no circles though/

As for the smoothing angel, I messed with it, but it had no effect...

Screenshots / a scene+objects would help.

Try merging points.. Points might be unweld, therefore polygons are flat.. Just a thought..

does it render wrong or are you judging it by the open GL. if it's by the OGL, is your viewport set to flatshade? :)
