I've been racking my brain about this. I've been trying to model this relatively simple handrail but there is one part where I am just stuck. Here is the reference:

Now I sort of tried to bevel the corner of a cuboid. But I only get so far:

I kind of faked the desire result with a cylinder and a sphere, but I am sure there must be a more efficient way of getting there:

Grateful for any input! Thank you in advance!

    $\begingroup$ or you can subdivide (smooth) 3 times a cube, keep only 1/4 and extrude $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 4 at 12:32

Of course there is a simple way :)

  1. Use Bevel modifier set to Weight, and with Clamp Overlap
  2. set Bevel Weight to 1 for selected edges.
  3. It will result in some double vertices, you can use the Weld modifier to get rid of them.

    $\begingroup$ @JachymMichal I don't think you did .. I suppose there is one more ... if you want all-quads, make sure the number of segments is even >:).. but that's just cheeky. $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Jun 4 at 13:09
  • $\begingroup$ @RobinBetts That's a very good one! :) $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jun 4 at 13:14

Just apply the scale of object, then bevel again. To aply, go to object mode then select your object. Press ctrl + A then select "scale" option.
