So this might be a little bit off topic, but I have some good experiences on this forum, so I’ll ask here anyway.
For my job, we use our 3D models from Rhino and manufacture them in a much larger scale in styrofoam.
The problem is that most models looks really smooth and rounded in Rendered mode. But when you get a look at them in Wireframe mode, most models will show a lot of big individual Meshed faces, with an overall much more “sharp” look, which we need to manually sand down to get a more smooth result.
Obviously the wireframe view represents the more accurate look of the model, so our end result in styrofoam will also show all the same Mesh faces in real life.
Is there some kind of smoothing going on in rendered mode? Or is it just a visual illusion. And maybe most importantly, is there a way to make models smoother/rounder?
looks pretty smooth
but actually has pretty big mesh faces
