Vertical edges on finishing

Postby Jerry In Maine » Mon Sep 09, 2019 12:14 am

Is there a way to minimize the rough edges you sometimes get on vertices (or near verticals) edges during finish passes of 3D models?

Node editing is important,
Adding a draft to the vertical edges and a bit of soft sculpting will help.

They can be reduced as Michael said, but honestly? I have not seen anyone who can make them go away without a lot of extraordinary effort.

There is a recent thread where we discussed this in length.

Depending on proximity of the surface a zero plane can sometimes help.
