subsurf, straight edges

When i subsurf I still have problems making straight edges. I know one way is to use more geometry, another way is to use shift E key. Are there any other ways to help making straight edge?

Hey there,

To make straight edges in a subsurfed object, i usually use the knife too to cut close to the edges.

eg. on a cube press k to loop cut and mouse wheel up to get 2 pink lines> scale both to loops on axis to the edges required until you get what you want.

Hope that helps

Great tip
