How to chamfer edges with the Bevel Modifier for architecture
After a really long week I got some time to create a quick tutorial about how to use the Bevel Modifier in Blender, to chamfer edges for architectural modeling. This is an important detail to add realism to walls and furniture. The trick is quite simple, and consists on use the Bevel Weight to apply the Bevel to a limited number of edges. But, how can we use the Bevel Weight in Blender 2.5? There is an
App Add-on for that! If you visit this page, you will find the script that will give you access to the Bevel Weight property. An updated version of the script is available at the last comment of that page. The script can be copied from pastell.org and you have to save it as something like “weight.py”.
Then, install the Add-on and after select an edge and press the CTRL+E you will find the Set Bevel Weight option.
Just watch the video below to see how it works:
