Im looking for a tool to smooth an edgeflow automaticaly. When you got a lot of polys it becomes a massive amount of work to smooth edges manually.

Here is an image of what I want to smooth. enter image description here

And here another one zoomed in for a detail enter image description here

So there are little bumps here and there in the edgeflow and I ask myself if Blender got a tool to smooth it automatically

Thanks for any sugestions and Best regards

  • $\begingroup$ nono, there are already too many vertecies. After subdivide-smoothing it the little bumps stay $\endgroup$ – Fabrice Magdanz Nov 25 '18 at 11:37
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not talking about subdivide+smooth but simple Smooth. Also, you could delete some vertices if you have too many, for example with the Select > Checker Deselect $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 25 '18 at 11:43
  • $\begingroup$ Why not to use curves? Try to apply some decimate modifier, and convert to curves to eventually find that life if actually not so hard. ;-) $\endgroup$ – Mechanic Nov 25 '18 at 11:52
  • $\begingroup$ Oh I missunderstoon =0 W - Smooth really was the tool that I was looking for =) Thank you!! (The checker deselect is a great idea as well, but in this case I really wanted to keep the polys as they are $\endgroup$ – Fabrice Magdanz Nov 25 '18 at 11:52

First you could simplify your mesh with the Checker Deselect (play with the parameters on the bottom of the Tools panel) and Dissolve Vertices. Then you could W > Smooth and again play with the parameters.

  • $\begingroup$ Thats it! I have done it like this and my edges are smooth like butter. Thank you so much! $\endgroup$ – Fabrice Magdanz Nov 25 '18 at 13:15
