Proper Order for Modifiers

Is the proper order for modifiers:

a) mirror, solidify, subdivision


b) mirror, subdivision, solidify

Also, I assume they should be applied in this order?


Hello, modifiers are applied/calculated from top to bottom.

In (A) the model would be mirrored, solidified and then smoothed.
In (B) the model would be mirrored, smoothed and then solidified.

Right, but is there a more correct order for solidify and subdivision?

You could do either, it comes down to whether you want the depth from the Solidify included in the smoothing from Subsurf
