I haven't done a ton of rounding and this shape is a bit odd. I'm selecting all points using the numeric panel and setting the attached values for the attached geometry. My goal is to get a small rounded edge on the entire model.

Thank You.

You will need to do it one loop of points at a time.

At a quick glance I would say 3 separate rounding operation for the main edges and 8 separate operations for the small circles.

The thing with rounder is that it will try to round all the edges available between the selected points, so some careful thought and pre-planning is required to get the rounding you are expecting. For instance on your object. The two edges that I have highlighted will be rounded but also all those cross edges circled will also be rounded, resulting in a bizarre result.

Yeh you would need to put a knife cut through the edges cagey has highlighted to prevent them being rounded; you can then delete the points created by the cut to return it back to how it was.
