Used to take an existing mesh element and create a new mesh that is smoother than the original. The tool applies a corner cutting process to the existing mesh. After selecting the mesh element, you can use <ctrl+data points> to select edges to remain sharp during the subdivision.
You can access this tool from the following:
|| Sets the method used to create the subdivision mesh.
- SubD Poly — Creates typical corner cutting results.
- SubD Tess — Produces a smoother result that, if the subdivision is continued an infinite number of times, gives the closest approximation to the optimal result.
|| Controls the number of times the mesh element facets are subdivided.
|| If on, the original mesh element is retained in the model.
|| If on, all sharp edges in the original mesh are retained, with only the faces subdivided into smaller facets.
