Created an object - how to chance its properties?

Post by Spankmeyer »

Tried to search forums and read beginner's guides, but I can't find the answer... sorry all for the extreme stupidity of mine.

I created a mesh cylinder and gave it vertice value of, say, 16. Now later I find out that the value is far too low - so where on earth can I access the object properties (?) where I can change the value to make it smoother? I cannot find a way around this and it's bugging me alot. No boolean operations or whatsoever editing has been done to the cylinder.

Thanks for your patience if you find time to help...

Hi, welcome to the world of Blender.

Sorry but Blender doesn't have parametric objects. You have to add a new cylinder with a higher polycount.
Another solution is to enable subSurf for the cylinder, but it will require some more work to make it look right.

Anyhow, this is a developer forum, you will get more help if you try a user forum such . Also you can try the online documentation/tutorial here and the wiki has an online manual

Happy blending :wink:
