Bevel

The Bevel command chamfers/fillets mesh or SubD edges with the specified segments.

Input

Steps

  1. Select one or more edges and press Enter.
  2. Move the cursor to decide the bevel amount and click.
    Or, enter a number and press Enter.
    The number can be an absolute distance or a proportional value based on the OffsetMode setting.

Command-line options

Edge selection mode
(Default)

Click selects a single edge. Double-click selects an edge loop.

Ctrl+click deselects a single edge. Ctrl+double-click deselects an edge loop.

EdgeLoop

Click an edge to select an edge loop.

The clicked edge displays a brighter highlight than the other edges in the loop.

Ctrl+click the same edge to deselect the loop.

Segments

The number of new faces added over the beveled edge.

OffsetMode
Proportional

The bevel amount is proportional to each crossing edge length. The input number should be between 0 and 1.0.

Absolute

The bevel amount is same for all edges. The input number is a distance in the model unit.

Straightness (0-1.0)

0 creates the most rounded bevel. More segments are required.

1.0 creates a flat bevel.

WeldAngle (Mesh only)

The tolerance in degrees for welding mesh edges.

RetainShape (Mesh only)

All new vertices added to the mesh will be on the original mesh edges.

KeepCreases (SubD only)

Specifies if creased edges will be retained.

The edge to bevel.
KeepCreases=Yes
KeepCreases=No
