In 02:05 of this video


some edges are beveled multiple times. However, when I try to do the same in Blender, after finishing my fist bevel, the selected edges include short in-between edges, and not only the edges parallel to the bevel.

What I'm getting:

unexpected after-bevel selection

What should the after-bevel selection look like according to the video:

expected behaviour

I have to manually de-seclect everything and re-select only the edges I want to bevel again, while in the beforementioned video that is not the case. How do I achieve the same behaviour of the bevel tool like in the video?

  • $\begingroup$ Holding down Alt and clicking one of the long edges to select will select the entire loop. Then holding shift+Alt+click on each additional edge will select everything there. This would only 4 mouse clicks. $\endgroup$ Dec 5 '14 at 12:11
  • $\begingroup$ @MarcClintDion However in the video there are substantially more edges. $\endgroup$

That video was made with an older version of blender (2.64). You can now do pretty much the same thing faster by beveling (⎈ CtrlB) and then using the scroll wheel or the numbers on the keyboard to set the number of cuts:

Or you could deselect the edge rings with ⎈ Ctrl⇧ Shift⎇ AltRMB RMB:

Not exactly an optimal solution, but I don't think this is possible without using an older version of blender..

  • $\begingroup$ While your solution is a good idea, the former, manual multiple beveling method allows a greater degree of control. In some situations even spacing of beveled edges is not desired. $\endgroup$
