I have a simple object with two rounded corners. The following screenshot shows the magnification of one of these corners. The corners were created with the bevel function.

Adding a subdivision surface modifier destroys the whole object.

Should I use more bevel segments from the beginning?

The object can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/t/JjbxccUV4YgI6zrG

  • $\begingroup$ If you want the surfaces to look smooth, right click > Shade Smooth, then play with the Auto Smooth angle value (10° works fine). If you want the edges to be smoother I guess you need to add Subdivision Surface but you'll need to change the topology (or sharp the edges with some modifiers or other tricks). $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 6 at 17:24

You can solve this by using supporting geometry. In the case of your object, adding edge loops at the places I've highlighted will give a clean look with a subdivision surface. Be careful positioning the large rectangle loop, because It seemed to cause artifacts in the bottom left area if not placed just right.

LoopCuts

Hope this helps.

Christopher's answer did not work for me, even if I added supporting edge loops on both sides of the groove. But adding a "Weighted Normal" modifier to the stack finally did the job.
