How can I clean up this Knife Project operation so the bad shading disappears?

The edges created by the Knife Project operation will be used to create a hole in the mesh using the Inset operation.

  • $\begingroup$ The cut seems to have an impact on the (future) hole part. So, try to make the hole (inset). That can also give you the ability to add more vertices along the mirror axis. But to help you more concretely, you should upload your file here blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 21 '16 at 11:43

try to make a strait line as on the pictur it shuld atleast look better. enter image description here

if you whant to kep the shape add a new edge close to it and work whith it insted. enter image description here

the last thing I whant to say is if you combinde the subsurfes and mirror modefiers. Put the mirror modefier firs if you don't whant a sharp edge on the mirror point.

  • $\begingroup$ My answer is not spesific for you'r case and it shuld solv you'r problem if you edit the shape $\endgroup$ – Alfons Marklén Aug 21 '16 at 13:02
