Default smartest way to "round"/"curve" a polygon edge

Helly everyone,

I'm looking for a smart / effectiv and simple way to make a polygon edge a bit more like a curve, or some kind of "round".

Dunno how I can explain it. You all know 6 sided dices, right? They are not just "sharp cubes" but "cubes with smooth edges".

Hope you guys can helpt me :bow:

Select the edges and then edit polygons->bevel, adjusthte settings to suit.

You might need to merge some verts to keep it all 4 sided though after the bevel.
