I tried to apply a Subdivision Surface on a part of my object. I can't keep the angles sharp, they all turn into rounded angles.

The angle before applying the Subdivision surface... enter image description here

...And after enter image description here


In order to keep hard your edges, use the Crease. You find it on the right

enter image description here

The crease makes your edges purple, in order to show you wich one will remain hard or not.

Usually is set on 0.00 . . . Max it from 0.00 to 1.00 and your edges will keep their shape after a subdivision surface.

For example: Before subdivision

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Fuboski. I tried and it works perfectly. Do I need to apply an Edge Split? $\endgroup$ – Grobby Sep 26 '16 at 19:11
  • $\begingroup$ It dipends . . .take care: edge split will need with the shading not for the subdivision surface. In order to undertsand better their function i suggest you this thread blender.stackexchange.com/questions/734/… $\endgroup$ – Fuboski Sep 26 '16 at 19:15
  • $\begingroup$ @Grobby if you are keeping the model in Blender exclusively then by all means yes if it helps but I think adding supporting geometry (edge loops) is an equally favorable option. See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/734/… for some tips. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Sep 26 '16 at 19:15
