Unhappy Chamfer Troubles...


I can probably imagine this question has been asked many a time but I can NOT find a resolution, maybe im doing something wrong here but I felt it best to ask foe help than get myself annoyed lol.


I am currently modelling a part of a scene and no matter what i constantly run into this problem when coming to chamfering edges (making rounded corners).

As you can see for Image 1 whilst chamfering a corner it works out really well and the smooth result I want.

But whilst doing it in another area of the model as you can see from Image 2.

Image 2

Can someone explain to me how to avoid this and get a smooth edge on the inside corners of models please?

Thank You

Your best bet, at least as far as my experience goes, with chamfering edges like that is to do them separately as loops.

I would do the two edges that are in the loop together (the one coming from the bottom and the one going to the corner of the pic), the do a separate chamfer for the edge that is connecting the extrusion.

You'll probably have to weld or collapse a couple of verts, but that should work.
