I am trying to bevel only selected edge of the mesh. I've read blender's manual and other questions but can't achieve my goalenter image description here

I would accept as a valid answer completely beveling (edges and vertices) top outside perimeter.

Thanks for your time.

    $\begingroup$ It's years since I've seen 2.79, but instead of using a Bevel modifier, can't you just select all the edges you want to bevel and use Ctrl-B? This is the manual section on using the bevel tool. You should apply the Scale to your object in Object mode and probably clear the Sharp (blue) setting from those edges first. $\endgroup$

The Bevel modifier has a parameter "Limit Method", you can either

• Assign your top outside perimeter vertices to a new Vertex Group, then if you set the "Limit Method" to the last option "Group" it lets you select your vertex group.

• Assign a Bevel Weight to your top outside perimeter edges, then set the "Limit Method" to the third option "Weight"

Mean Bevel Weight
