Default Plugin or tool: chamfer and fillet

A chamfer/fillet tool would be most useful, I think.

Default Re: Plugin or tools:

Hi all a nice inclusion to Plugin / Tools, would be an extrude ie from round to square or from one shape to another. I have seen one in a program, although it was not a 3d object program, it was a program called Corel Draw, it did produce it in a 3D like sharp but fixed in the viewing angle.

Default Re: Plugin or tool: chamfer and fillet

I have tried beveling, but there is a problem which is very easily visible with an example:
1) create a simple cube;
2) with the 3D view zoom on one vertex;
3) perform beveling (the result is acceptable);
4) perform again beveling... and the resulting surface is a real mess.

As contrast, you can have a look at how Silo or Wings3D handle beveling: you can go on applying this operation, creating more and more smooth edges.

Is there a way to do something similar in AC3D (without using the tecnique described in http://www.inivis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4101)

which is not the fastest method ?

Thanks a lot in advance.
