I am bevelling a simple circle with another simple circle and as you can see from the screen shot below I have to make the bevel circle incredibly small and I still end up with a very large cross section. I don't understand why the cross section on the bevelled curve isn't the same size aenter image description heres the bevel curve.

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, Ctrl-A and selecting rotation and scale worked. I'm not sure why though. Thanks for all the comments. I'll go investigate ctrl-A now... $\endgroup$

You will have to :

  • apply the scale Ctrl+A
  • select all point of the curve and reset the radius back to 1 :

Note : to avoid applying the scale just set the radius to 1/scale

Once you've selected a bevel object, the bevel_depth and bevel_resolution parameter doesn't affect the bevel. Rescale the bevel object in Object or Edit mode, and you will see a change in the final geometry that the Curve uses.
