That's an isosurface?  :O

Have you tried just changing the threshold that you're evaluating the isosurface
at?
At 0, it should be crisp, as you increase the threshold, you should start to
round over any corners.
So what you eventually do is determine how much you need to "inflate" your shape
by, scale it down by that much, and then re-inflate to the original size by
increasing the threshold.   Then you have a rounded version of the same size.
