Softening round edges

Now let's talk about smoothing or softening the edges of objects within SketchUp. We are going to create two objects; we are going to create a circle and a polygon. So I am going to create the circle and I am going to type in 12 sides. So I am going to make a 12- sided circle and then I am going to hit the Pull button and pull that up into a cylinder. Then I am going to do the exact same thing with the polygon. So I am going to take a polygon, make sure it's 12 sides, create the polygon, hit the P key and pull it up. So we have two very similar objects. Now the only difference between these is how it's displaying these edges here. So if you click on this cylinder, you will see that it's all -- or at least SketchUp tells us it's all one face. But if we look at it from the top, you can see that even though this is listed as a circle, you still have straight-line edges, because we only have 12 sides to this circle and we have 12 sides to this as well.

Now the only differ...
