I am trying to add texture to a logo using the Displacement modifier and a Subsurf modifier as is being done in this tutorial at around 6:30.

enter image description here

The logo is made from a .svg curve to which I added extrude and depth effects before converting the curve to a mesh.

enter image description here

When I add the Displace modifier to the mesh, it instantly breaks.

enter image description here

Applying location and scale and rotation helps fix this but there are still large cuts and crevices in the result:

Is there any way that the mesh won't break?

I tried subdividing a few times, but this didn't really help.

  • $\begingroup$ @10Replies yeah it's pretty cool, I agree! I did play with animating this effect as well ;) $\endgroup$ – MicroMachine Nov 24 '16 at 17:51

This is because your mesh is splitted into Flat parts (Probably because you used an Edge Split Modifier).

To combine it and have it not "Break" you can enter edit mode, select all vertices and press W then Remove Doubles.

Not related to the question:

I would recommend you remesh your object to get a better toplogy using the Remesh Modifier
