I have tried to smooth this couch’s rear end for several hours today.
Sofa is built in Solidworks 08 and exported as .3DS model as all tri’s. Not a single quad in my 3ds models.
Images show model as the straight import
With set smooth under materials
With edit subdivide 15 cuts
With add modifier - smooth 1x1
With add modifier - smooth 0.1 x 10 + set smooth under materials
The only way I could get this close to smooth is the add modifier - smooth 0.1 x 10 + set smooth under materials, however it rips a huge hole in the front right of my couch - hole does not show up in edit mode or looking at any geometry in edit mode. See image of hole.
Leave your mouse over images for a second to see what the description is.
Any ideas to help me here?
