Hello i have a file attached at https://pasteall.org/blend/a98056a67ac44c44a31606c55252f763 where i have created 3 cubes each with letters N,Z, and K engraved on them. N and Z work perfectly fine with the bevel modifier and i have checked and made sure the geometry of each cube is perfect with no duplicate edges, vertices, faces but i cannot for the life of me figure out why the K cube cracks with a bevel modifier and also it doesn't bevel as smooth as N and Z which also have acute angles. Any idea what is going on?

    $\begingroup$ @TheLabCat: If you would have opened the blend file you would have seen that it is not the geometry, but face orientation... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris I wasn’t exactly in a position to open the Blend file at the time. But I meant to ask: how did you show the face orientation in the new file? I’ve never quite figured out how to do that. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @TheLabCat: i am not sure whether i understood you right, but you can see face orientation here:[1]: i.sstatic.net/S0KBS.png -> viewport overlays -> check "face orientation" $\endgroup$

Your "K" has wrong face direction:

So select your K, then TAB -> edit mode, then Mesh -> Normals -> Recalculate outside
