Exporting OBJ with subdivision surface

Recommended Posts

I have a model that I've added a subdivision surface object on to smooth out the polygons and  I want to export it as an OBJ, however when I export the OBJ the subdivisions are missing so the edges aren't rounded.


How do I there therefore make the subdivisions part of the model so it can export properly?


Thanks in advance

If you wish the apply the SDS tag permanently you just set the SDS tag Subdivision Render level to what you want then  hit the C key or the Top left button (Make editable).  Its always a good job to keep a copy of the low sub d version.  There is also a Subdivide tool in the Mesh/Commands menu with a smooth setting.


PS:  If you export as a FBX then it makes the SDS Tag for you and makes your object a child of it.
