Subdivision Surface

Refine and smooth a PolyNURBS surface by adjusting the parameters of its subdivisions.

  1. On the ribbon, click the PolyNURBS tab.
  2. Click the Subdivision Surface icon.

  3. Optional: Enter the number of Iterations. The greater the number of iterations (subdivisions), the smoother the resulting surface.
    Note: The subdivision computation uses a lot of memory, so be careful not to increase the number of iterations too much.
  4. Click the PolyNURBS object.
  5. Right-click and mouse through the check mark to exit, or double-right-click.
