If you make a bevel on an edge that is sharper than 90º, it won't be circular.
This is what i have to do in order to make a circular bevel on a sharp edge:

  1. Make a 1 segment bevel
  2. On the resulting 2 edges, make bevels that meat each other.
  3. Weld the part where the 2 bevels meet.

circular bevel

But if I would make just a single bevel, it will look like this:

egg shaped bevel

Why is it like that? And is there a solution less convoluted than what I've shown? Recommended add-on perhaps?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. I played with all the other settings, too. The 2nd closest i got to the desired effect is by adjusting profile %. But it still results in ugly geometry: image $\endgroup$ – Alex S Aug 12 '20 at 7:07

This seems to be working on current version. (2.91.0)

I used to have this problem, but it is easily fixed by simply applying the scale with "ctrl-A > scale".

  • $\begingroup$ If you look at his second picture, the scale is (1,1,1) meaning it is already applied. $\endgroup$ – Ron Jensen Aug 11 '20 at 20:07
