Chamfer issues
show user profile  Neomace
I'm in the middle of designing and building a night club for a client in Blackpool. I'm making everything from scratch but I've noticed a few issues, one that's popped up a few times is Chamfering an edge but the chamfer just cuts of the corner and adds edges but doesn't make curve in the geometry.

The edge I'm chamfering has been extruded out from the original piece but other than that hasn't been altered.

If someone could add some light on this I would be most grateful.

Kind regards

That's just max's chamfer. I believe they now have a quad chamfer in 2015.

You can purchase the quad chamfer script from script spot. Worthwhile investment.

Also you can get around this by not using chamfer. I find adding a support edge either side of the corner and turbosmoothing pretty good (but gets boring as hell to do to every single curve). Instead of adding a turbosmooth I'd use flow connect. Fuck turbosmoothing everything. Slows renders too.

Hope that helps.

Guests have reported that Blackpool Club. However, since the beginning of the curve and angle and geometry. This is not the son of geometry, at first. If I was.

Thanks Herfst1 that does help alot, I'm using 2015 and the quad chamfer does the same just adds more edges.

I've not used turbo smooth much I'm self taught with 3ds max so not all clued in with the little shortcuts.

I will bare in mind what you said about flow connect and look in to it more to understand how it could help.

Hi Manfred, couldn't make much sense of your post but thank your for your contribution.

Kind regards

Note: I didn't do this in the video, but you can add support edges back in again after you've flow-connected it.

Also note: there's tonnes of different ways to do this.
