- [Instructor] In previous chapters,…we've seen 3-D meshes that have…very jagged and sharp edges.…Right now, with this lesson, I'm already in the 402 model,…and we have these two tables, and they're very hard edges.…What we can do is smooth this out,…so ultimately, this is a tabletop,…and it's not supposed to be octagonal,…although that looks kind of cool.…While I'm an item selection mode,…I'm going to select this model here.…
Actually, this model, and what we'll do…is smooth this out by adding geometry.…The quick way to do that is by going to the mesh edit…tool groupings here.…We go to subdivide, and SDS subdivide.…Now, there's a key command for that,…it's the D key on the keyboard.…Hit D, it smooths it out.…That looks like a pretty smooth mesh there,…but that's an awful lot of polygons.…
What we can do in this other table…is keep the same number of polygons,…but have it look smooth.…The key command for that is the tab key.…Hit the tab key, and it smooths it out.…If you want it smoother, you have options to do that.…
