I am working on a project to create a bed frame like the one pictured below. I figured the best way to do so would be some beveling.

Bed frame I took inspiration from

I was having trouble on the original object. I decided to show my example on a new cube to get my point across.

I added loop cuts similar to the bedframe I am working on.

I extruded my loops cuts to the desired size.

When I threw on the first bevel I got the results I wanted, but when i threw on the second bevel I did not.

I want all of my bevels to match the first one.

Final results of my failed attempt

Here is the link for my test file so you can see what I did.

  • $\begingroup$ @R-800 Do you have any idea though on how to fix this? $\endgroup$ – joeythefake May 10 at 23:54
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been away for a while. I wasn't able to reproduce your issue. But I did notice that your face normals are not all facing the same way, which can cause all sorts of issues. I wasn't able to get your strange, inverted bevel behavior to happen even with flipped normals when I tested this, though. So this may not be your issue. Still, your normals need to all be facing the same way. $\endgroup$ – R-800 May 19 at 20:06
  • $\begingroup$ @R-800 Hey thanks for the response. Yeah I fixed my normals and still had the issue, but was able to resolve said issue by using insets instead of the extrude method I was using. Cheers! $\endgroup$ – joeythefake May 20 at 22:23
