This is a small part of the object I want to smoothen so fixing the vertices will take time, is there a fast way to smoothen the lip of edges of my cylinder?

Exactly like this. enter image description here

Things I tried but didn't worked: Subdivision surface modifier, Bevel modifier, Bevel node- doesn't look good, Edit mode Bevel

I provided the blender file below so you'll see the object I'm talking about.

Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you but I'm trying to figure out how to geometrically change the lip of the cylinder rounded. $\endgroup$ Dec 21 '20 at 6:47
  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, a quick, easy (or even a rather time consuming) method for rounding the topology of your edge is not possible due to the mesh being triangulated to the extent that it is. I even tried a few common, quick methods to convert the mesh back to quads, but to no avail. Is there any reason you can't use a quad based mesh instead? $\endgroup$ Dec 21 '20 at 7:39
  • $\begingroup$ Actually, unless he wants to keep the current topology, he can quicky correct it with X > Limited Dissolve for example $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ChristopherBennett I am trying to make svg(vector format) turn into 3d but I'm finding hard it to soften them. <img src="https://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/embedImage.png?bid=AQY90K0L" /> $\endgroup$ Dec 21 '20 at 9:15

Your topology is not good so the bevel won't work properly, what you can do is:

  • First apply the scale, otherwise the bevel will be deformed on an axis:

  • Go in Edit mode, you have a lot of triangles, a quick way to fix it is to select all and X > Limited Dissolve (the default settings will work fine):

Delete the top faces with X > Faces:

  • You need to delete some rebel vertices along the edge with X > Dissolve Vertices:

  • Enable the LoopTools addon, select the top edges and right click > LoopTools > Bridge to create new faces:

enter image description here

  • Select the top edges and CtrlB to bevel. You can tweak all the settings in the Operator box (bottom left of your 3D view):
