What is wrong with my mesh?
show user profile  Viva-La-Baz
This is my first time attempting a high poly detailed object.

Here it is without a turbo smooth modifier on

Here it is zoomed

and here it is with a turbo smooth on.

The problem im looking at is the part which has been circled in red. (The blue marks do need fixing but i know what to do there)
what is it I need to add/remove to fix this problem

Your unsmoothed mesh doesn't need that much detail, that's what smoothing is for, I'd simplify it greatly

I forget if this is in Maya or 3ds max (it's all a burr to me at this point), but I remember a glitch with turbosmoothing like this where the surface wasn't rebuilt correctly when it was subdividing..

Topo was perfect. Verts were welded. No duplicates of anything.. but I got results along the lines of what you are getting with your mesh.

I'd go in and double check to make sure the verts are welded appropriately. Nothing wacky going on... and then rebuild that portion of the mesh to see if that fixes anything...

but Boing is right, there is not need for your base mesh to have that many edge loops. Let the smooth mod do the work for you.

You're putting the support edges in the wrong areas.
