Smooth Shading?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to force Vectorworks to smooth-shade an object? I have some low-poly natural objects that I would like to render as smooth in Renderworks but I don't see a lot of options short of working through the model from every edge. I can easily render this out in a program like Blender but I am interested in recreating the rendering in Vectorworks if possible.

Thanks, that does improve it but I'm still seeing the sharp edges. Is there any way to set the smoothing on a texture? With a crease angle of 170 It starts to look a little better, but I wouldn't call this modern smoothing by any means. Are there any other smoothing options?
