Hi friends!
I need your help, I am very frustrated, I try to create the round shape as the front of the mixer, like the picture, and I can not, if I delete the EDGES and the VERTEX I can produce the form but then she twisted like the second picture I am attaching . Does anyone have an idea how to make it on the surface ? What am I missing here

Just don't remove the shapes inside the cut area. Make a nice curvy cut by hand and don't use turbosmooth to made rounded shapes.

I don't think you should be relying on turbosmooth to do everything for you. Sure, it's nice and all cause it makes sharp things smooth, but if you'd learned poly modelling rules you'd never have come up with that mesh in the first place. Hate to knock, but it's so far from correct I think you're going to have a tonne of trouble with every other part of your project.

You don't always have to model to a shape.

For example, it might be easier to make the hole on a flat plane and then bend that into a cylinder. That way you don't even have to worry about the curve until the final step and you can tweak the mesh to your will.

You can also work without collapsing the stack in this way so you can go back and test how the changes you make effect everything you do, it really helps to work out what is happening whilst you model.
