Chamfer not going as planned

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

 

First of all my apologies to everyone I didn't responded to in other treads or in DM's. I ran into some personal issues. Nothing to bad, but it caught my attention.

Second of all I have a question regarding the file in attachment.

I have set a selection on the model.

I want to chamfer the edges (5 subdivisions, 0.05cm distance). But only the selected edges. The rest needs to be a hard corner.

 

What's the best way to do this?

FYI, you can use a image of a BOSS Distortion DS-1 guitar pedal as reference image. That's what I'm trying to replicate.

 

Many many thanks for your time and input.

Regards,

Pieter

you would just bevel it I guess or use the bevel deformer, but in either case it will be a bit odd where it stops unless you continue those edges around somehow.

Using your selection tag in bevel deformer. I think the actual "chamfer" command only refers to splines.

Thanks Bezo, I learned something there too but I also have a question. How have you made the top corner go the right way, on my example its sort of backwards if ya know what I mean, grab below.

bevel works more accurate with n-gons. If you compare previous and updated model,  2 top planar "L" polygons has dissolved edge from cornerf to corner. Simply created n-gon as I said in upper post...

Ah, thanks for explaining that, I wasn't quite sure re the non comment. Makes it very tidy.

 

Thanks again
