I am a former rhino 3d user, and trying a number of other 3d apps (mostly free) I finally landed on LW 9.5. Like it a lot! Following the sandcastle tutorial I managed to apply the tut instructions to the ashtray project that I've decided to make my first. Nice.. The only thing missing is the subdevide something that makes everything smooher and more pleasing for the eye. Any thoughts?
Tnx :lwicon:

In the Surface editor in Layout, choose the object and click on smoothing. You should also go into Modeler, open the ashtray object, then click subpatch. You can do this a few times which will give it more geometry but look better. Hope this helps.

In the surface editor I made the smoothness 108%.
SunPatch! This is the one I was looking for. Many tnx :thumbsup:

test the 'tab' key in modeler and you will make the object a subpatch object, press 'tab' again to make it ordinary polys.
