Default circular fillet

Hi Everybody,

I've just finished this trim/circular fillet tutorial:

http://www.animagraph.com.br/DeathBr...m_Tutorial.htm

and everything was pretty ok. However, when I rendered the scene I noticed some undesirable lines at the top of the piston. How can I avoid them? what went wrong?

Thanks

Eduardo

Ok, I used the suggested settings:

on render > set NURBS tessellation > option box

Curvature Tolerance: Highest Quality

U division Factor: 5000
V division Factor: 5000

Wich parameters should I change?
