Howdy all

I have a flat object that is shaped like a set of fingers (although box shape) i have extruded the object but when i bevel it parts of the surface disappears!!

I find when beveling a complicated shape the bevel messes it all up…is there a LW (7) genius out there can suggest a way to avoid this???

Thanks
William

Sounds like your points are overlapping and the polygon is flipping. Post a screenshot and it'll help. However, after you bevel a complex shape and the poly seems to dissappear, take a close look at the points - either rearrange or weld overlaps and alll should be good. Hit flay and look up Bevel++ - it's a tool that automatically welds overlapping points while beveling.
