Motion Envelope Refinement

I'm working on creating motion envelopes for tires and I'm wondering if the community has some tips or pro/workaround tricks for refineing envelopes.

I've been able to improve the mesh quality quite a bit by increasing the motion analysis frame rate, shade quality, edge display quality.

What I started with (shade=3, edge=medium, frame rate=10, envelope quality=10):

What I have now (shade=10, edge=very high, frame rate=100, envelope quality=10):

A big improvement, but the mesh still has jagged elements that I would like to smooth out:

Does anyone know if there are some other options I can tweak or tools I can use in Creo 2 to create a smooth mesh? I imagine there's a smoothing function in the surfacing or reverse engineering applications, but I don't have access to them.

I know how to do what I'm looking for in Matlab, but I'd prefer to do this in Creo if possible.

Thanks!
