How can I get rid of it????
show user profile  Speedy
I have created holes on a curved surface, applied duplicate chamfers and and turbosmooth this... I get a bump, I couldnt be able to figure out how to get rid of it, after trying adding edges, and some changes...

Any tips or suggestion on how I could get rid of it?

Probably beause each of the edge polys are five sided and not four sided. Remodel properly is the solution.

Well.. sometimes 5 sides work better than 4 for this particular situation... Otherwise corner will be pinched.

Peculiar, I just modeled the same shape as you did, chamfered the edges, created five sided polygons, and it worked without a hitch. Try remodeling it, it should take you all of one minute at the most.

Oh I must have misunderstood you... I should read carefully. I thought you were telling me not to use 5 sides but use 4 instead.. Anyway.. The corners of a hole is 5 sided.. but yet when mesh/Turbo smooth it creates bulge as first image

I guess no solution for it eh?

there's a solution, you just need to lay out your polygons in a better manner...

someone will be along shortly to mend the error of your ways... till then sit tight.

(in the end, mrp was right... you'll have to do a bit of remodeling.)

Have you tried to weld any extra verts together, or perhaps the chamfer went too far on your version and created lines underneath other lines?

Acutaly there is no soultion for this, think about what your doing, your going from really really tiny polygons into big massive ones on an overroll curved surface.

On non flat surfaces meshsmooth works best if all the polygons are the same size and squares, otherwise you get inperfect smoothing, most of the time you get away with non-perfect smoothing if you do it right.

Adding more polys to lessen the gap is the only work around to your problem. (that I know of)

4-sided polys (quads) are indeed your best hope when dealing with meshsmooth, its a well known fact.

Here's your best bet for this problem:
