How to smooth the edges of an extruded type?
show user profile  batzorig
I am new to 3d Max. Recently I drew lines for a hand drawn text. Then I used Extrude Modifier. The edges of this text look too sharp. I want it look like a molded metal type. What is the best way to make it a little smoother? I tried Bewel tool but it is giving me many distortions on the end points.
Thank you for the advice.

You are going to have to manually fix some areas when doing this whatever method you use. but try looking into the rounded edges option in the A+D materials in Mental Ray, might be enough.
