    How to SMP?

    Harold & Stefan, WOW! Even though the icons are right next to each other, I never knew about or even noticed the "Sketched bends" option. Looks like exactly what I need . Now all I have to do is figure out how to use it. Thanks!!!

    How to SMP?

    Thanks guys, but it seems that this area where the angled wings meet with the flat tab radius remains a problem. Need this to be a smooth, fluid, natural transition, not some jagged edge.
