I am making a victorian style chair, and am now working on the upholstery, and am trying to get the classic attachment button depression shape. I have the basic shape blocked out, but I can't figure out how to make the shape on it.

Here is what I want:

I have just the vertice now, I want to do something like a bevel and end up with the square. It seems there should be an easy way to do this, does anybody know one?

You can bevel vertices using Ctrl+Shift+B shortcut. Dragging the mouse will change bevel depth, and scrolling middle mouse button will change the amount of segments.

You can also use the bevel modifier instead, and activate the 'Only Vertices' check. Control size with Width.

  • $\begingroup$ you do realize that Ctrl+Shift+B is a shortcut for bevel with vertices Only activated !? ( so this is the same as the other answer ) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Chebhou It isn't. The end result will be the same (at least if you apply the modifier), but Ctrl+Shift+B doesn't add a modifier. $\endgroup$
