How do I make the edge of 2 curved polysurfaces meet?


New member
I have three pillars that emerge from the ground to meet in the air at a given point. All three pillars are the same, just rotated equidistant around a circle. The pillar is made by sweeping a triangular form (on the ground) to an equilateral triangle in the air along a vertical arc. However, when the 3 pillars are arranged as described above, there is an unseemly edge that protrudes near the meeting point at the top (illustrated by the .png images). I have tried slicing the edge off or adjusting the control points of the arc but I still get the edge. Is there another way to resolve this edge?
