This is my first 3D modeling project and I am completely self taught.  So please excuse my ignorance as I try to explain the issue I’m having.


I’m using Solidworks, and my parts have a lot of curved surfaces.  I found that when I received my printed parts from Shapeways, the polygons were visible on the curved surfaces.  The attached photo shows the problem.


Do I need to use more polygons somehow?  If so, where in Solidworks would I control that?


I've been unable to find any info on this.  I’m really as a loss so any help is greatly appreciated.




  1. PS.  I outputted the parts as .STL files, if that maters
