Default cps - crease tool?

does anyone know if cps comes with a tool of sorts that would emulate the crease/partial crease tools in maya's subd modelling menu? i read through cps's docs but couldn't find anything that resembled a crease tool. i'm trying to create fingernails/toenails..

thanks all

Not sure this is exactly what you are looking for but I remembered a nice tutorial done by Christer Dahl on SubD modelling finger/hand.

Can you "bevel" it? - that may give you the effect you need?

just play with the setting's if it's possible.

youd normally poly split the face a few time. The more edges you have the sharper the angle will be, so if you really want a sharp corner, put three or so edges close together.
