thx for the answer, but it doesn't work
It only makes the effect harder...

Other ideas?

in the normal mode (without smooth), there're no such "lines" on the face. Only with smoothing or polygons->normals->softer is this "effect" visible...


Edit:

@4: No changes with rendering!

Are the vertices along those edges merged?

I generally set all the faces to the outside (or front whatver its called)
Then I select the edges that are being bad and do a polygons -> smooth (to all soft)
Sometimes its an idea to delete all your history on it after setting the faces to front and then try the soften edges.
