How is glass chamfered?
1,2, 3 or none of the examples? Are there other types of chamfers?

Depends on how the glass is made I suppose, or maybe I'm not understanding your question.
I have seen glass plates with rounded edges like the last one, but also with angled edges like the first 2 (even though I would still chamfer the edges a bit with the first 2 cubes, as they are probably doing that with real life glass objects too because if they don't it's probably as sharp as a knife.)
What about rendering it out with a glass mat and see how it looks.

I'm creating some glass objects and they need to have chamfered edges. I just wondered if there was a common type of chamfer

I've never seen glass like 3 unless it's got a sort of plastic lacquer or coating on the edges. My understanding is that the edges of glass are always extremely sharp. I would say 1 is your best bet.

I think that technically speaking option 3 is "filleted" or "radiused". Glass is usually chamfered like option 1 as far as I am aware, but I can't find any diagrams or images on google to confirm.

Thanks guys :) Is it ever 2? is 2 an actual type of chamfer?

number 1 would be a natural corner chamfer that forms when the edges are ground. Number 2 would require an extra bit of work. I assume you could have it like 3 if you wanted, but it would be more expensive.

It all depends on what you are talking about. For glass shelves I quite often see edges that have been softened by use of a flame to make the edge less likely to hurt anything.

Where did you find that? I searched for ages for an image showing various chamfers :/
