I got the habit of using the “Bevel Center” script to bevel my edges because I can select the edges I want to bevel. Someone in the “Loops and Poles” thread mentioned that I should take a look at the new v2.46 Bevel modifier. I did. Indeed, there is a “BevW” button there where the description reads like “Use bevel weight to determine how much bevel is applied; apply them separately in vert/edge select mode”. That seems to be designed to do what I need but I’m stuck and I can’t find how to make it work.
Anyone have an idea of how to proceed? A step by step procedure would help.
I tried selecting vertices and then click on “apply” but that does not work.
With the Bevel Modifier you can have tapered bevel edges going from one weighted edge to the next edge that has a different weight.
One thing that I find useful in the Bevel Centre script is the recursive function allowing you to have a smooth radius chamfer rather than a sharp fillet. It would be great if this was also available with the Bevel Modifier.
