I'm attempting to replicate this geometry:

Geometry to replicate

The main difficulty is curving that middle section. I have this currently, but am stumped on trying to graduate between the 2 selected edge loops:

Current geometry

Instead of the hard step from the inset, is there a way to curve between those 2 edges? The bevel tool doesn't quite do what I want it to and all the resources I google for "bevelling" are about round the corners of the shape, rather than between 2 edges.

EDIT: Bevelling the centre edge doesn't curve, just adds loop cuts: enter image description here

1 Answer 1


Ah I had the Profile variable set to 1! So it was trying to square everything off!

Changed the bevel settings to this to resolve my issue - enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Hey :). You can also use custom bevel profile to create the whole shape in one go. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 8, 2020 at 14:09
