View Full Version : 4+ Sided Poly Edge Bevel???

Does anyone know of a way to cut a 45 degree beveled edge along each level of this terrain model???

Edge Bevel and Rounder tools seem only to work where 4 sided polys meet up with other four sided polys.

Interestingly enough, I was only able to produce the contour levels using LW 8.3's new ability to handle polys with a huge amount of points.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

For that sort of thing you should be able to use edgebevel or rounder. Should be able to....

I would suggest using a shader, which fakes the bevel. Have a look at:

www.happy-digital.com which has EdgeFX, a great plugin for doing edgebevels with a shader, and can do lots of funky things to them...

Or :

which is free, but only does the shading part.
