Everytime I try to subdivide or use a boolean on an object with a smooth surface I get ugly artifacts as seen here. Is there a way to punch a hole through a smooth object while keeping sharp edges?

Without Edge Split modifier (left) and after applying Edge Split modifier (right).

    $\begingroup$ If not sticking to semi-automated solutions like using AutoSmooth or EdgeSplit modifiers no matter what geometry is underneath, no, there isn't. Fix the Ngons and long tiny tris/quads appeared after Boolean and you'll get more decent shading at the edges $\endgroup$

Select the model Go to edit mode and press w and Remove doubles

Select the cylinder and add one subdivide

Now with the boolean modifier selecting the difference select the object.

    $\begingroup$ Sorry but you can still see the bad artifacts at the end of your gif. And why subdivide? It's supposed to be lowpoly. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ There is no need to use the blend file. Look the 3rd picture in my question I have edited. I cannot get it done in a brand new project $\endgroup$
