I am trying to apply a bevel modifier to a box with some additional buttons, however, I am struggling to apply the bevel modifier only to the top face and the edges that are connected to that face. In a nutshell, I am trying to bevel the top of the box without affecting the bottom and the buttons.

Here is an image of what I get upon applying the bevel modifier: 1

You can use bevel weights, which lets you specify a value between 0 (no bevel) and 1 (full bevel).

Create a vertex group where you want the bevel to happen. In the modifier's Limit Method choose Vertex Group, and Select your vertex group.
