Smooth Artifacts


i have some ugly artifacts after smoothing a extruded circle per “Set Smooth”.
Its my first day with Blender, so please excuse my missing expert knowledge.

Here are two pictures which visualize my problem.
This is the artifact i talked about.
This is the same object in solid mode.

I also attached my .blend file.

Please tell me, how to fix that ugly artifact.
Thank´s for your help.

Select all vertices and use Ctrl+N to recalculate the face normals.
If you have a question, I’d suggest you first do a forum search for your problem, as this one is probably the most common problem on these forums.

Hello Richard,

i have searched in this forum but maybe i used the wrong search words.
Thank you for your help.


Firstly, welcome to the forum. Secondly, yes, just select all and press Ctrl+N and you should be good.
