Phong tag not smoothing model
on Mar 27, 2019 at 12:14:27 pm

Hi I've been provided with an STL CAD model which I need to texture and animate but I'm unable to smooth the object (it should be cylindrical).

I'm new to C4D but had tried aligning normals, subdividing, smoothing in modelling menu, untriangulating.

Images for reference:

not enough info. Is there a Normal tag on the imported object as well? A screen shot of the whole screen might help, or you might have to post the scene file.

That phong tag that comes in with things like primitives in C4D already has it's break angle set and turned on. When you add a phong tag to something like an imported STL, its' not really doing anything yet because the angle limit checkbox is off. Turn it on and play with the angle. You may have to increase the default value of 40 to get things looking smooth.
