Default The right way to deal with Bevel ?

Hi folks,

When i bevel edges i often get unwanted edges (the ones that go from side to side of the arch), do you recommend to delete them ?

:o

Personally, I don't use the Maya Bevel tool. I would recomend that you bevel the edges by hand. It gives you move control over the outcome. But back to your question, yes, you should go back in after beveling and clean up any unecessary edges.

I reccomend you to use BPT_bevel. It can be downloaded from http://www.highend3d.com.

I have only recently started to use the bevel feature in maya (DOH!!), it works ok, but you definitely have to clean up the extra unwanted edges that it produces. If you go round and delete the extra edges it produces nice clean bevels.
