Smooth Mesh

Use the Smooth tool to optimize the mesh quality of parts or surfaces.

This tool is similar to the Edit → Smooth tool, however the selection in that case is very specific to element error. This tool works on a general selection.

  1. From the Discrete ribbon, click the Smooth tool.
    Figure 1.

  2. Select surfaces or parts to smooth the associated mesh.
  3. Enter the number of iterations used to smooth your selection.
    Tip: Increasing smoothing iterations can smooth shapes further but can also cause more deviation from geometry. It is better to smooth iteratively. You can select elements to just smooth locally.
  4. Click Smooth.
