I Havent got the subsurf tool

Right Heres my problem.
Im New to blender and have been playing around with it. Ive been trying to do a tutorial ( the gingerbread man on the blender site) but i get so far and cant carry on because i havent got the subsurf tool. I know were is should be but it isnt there. How Can i get it bk?


The gingerbread tutorial is rather obsolete. The subsurf is now a modifier. Go under editing (F9), modifiers panel and apply the subsurf modifier to your object. Or you can press ctrl+1 for level 1 subdivision, ctrl+2 for level 2, ctrl+3 for level 3 etc. of course with the object selected.

I have also been looking for this everywhere since updating Blender. I sure wish the release information had highlighted this – but you saved me from dropping back a few releases just to get this capability back.

How can I avoid this in the future? Am I missing something?:slight_smile:

You can find most up to date Blender related material at the wiki of Blender. Take a look at http://mediawiki.blender.org/index.php/Manual/Your_First_Animation_in_30_plus_30_Minutes_Part_I for example.

This is great! I had printed a previous version of this from http://download.blender.org/documentation/htmlI/ch04.html

The 30+ 30 animation was the very one I was stuck on. The new documentation is perfect! Thank you!:slight_smile:

The search feature on this forum holds a veritable treasure trove of answers to many questions. In many cases, it is also the fastest way to find a solution. The subsurf button question has been the single-most-asked question in the last 12 months :slight_smile:
