I'm trying to model the highlight area of the attached model but each time I use to boolean tool set to difference, my edges in the render do not taper off as smooth as the original. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

    $\begingroup$ Hi :). This might be easier done manually without booleans. The corner geometry will be a lot cleaner. $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 28, 2021 at 14:17
  • $\begingroup$ This looks like normals problems, and the geometry might be correct. Are you using auto smooth? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @JachymMichal that's where I struggle when it come to the manual side of thing haha ... I started off manually but kept running into issues with the geometry. As a newbie I'm sure there's still some figuring out to do. How would you approach it? $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 28, 2021 at 14:26

    $\begingroup$ @TheLabCat I didn't actually think of normals!!! I am using auto smooth though. Thanks for your prompt reply btw $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 28, 2021 at 14:28

Just an example of a possible topology :)

To fill faces use Vertex > New Face (Shortcut: F)
And if you don't like n-gons, simply connect the vertices across as well.

    $\begingroup$ I definitely wouldn't have thought of that approach! Thanks a bunch for the visual aid!!! $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 28, 2021 at 16:32
