Smoothing a faceted surface after extrusion


Hi everyone, 


I've been looking for a solution to this issue of trying to smooth out a faceted surface after it's been extruded. 


Obviously my options are redraw it with a complete curve however this would take a while and undo a lot of the other work I've done on the object.


In OpenGL it's not an issue as the facets are hidden however in Hidden Line mode we see the lines. I know you can smooth it out by adjusting settings in Hidden Line by increasing the angle but that's more a workaround and related to hiding lines rather than actually smoothing them and removing the facet lines.


Is there a tool I'm missing for this? In SketchUp, the tool is related to the eraser tool and with a keyboard shortcut and you can smooth out a surface easily. 


Any tips would be appreciated.
