I am a journeyman in SketchUp, i can build things that are recognizable, but what i need to do is smooth a surface so that when i render it it doesnt show up as different triangles shaded, but as a continuous curve
case in point:

instead of this
(this is one of my old ones)
also, any recommendations on how to build the detail objects?
