Well one method you could do is convert it to subdivide by going build>convert to subdivide, the same way you convert a base object to a mesh, it will give the object a rounded shape but in the point editor it will keep its blocky look to make it easier to edit it and continue work on it.

Select the mesh object and go "Build>Convert to subdivided" and you can double click and change the subdivision level.
