How can I bevel this ? It's a shape that I've attached to a sphere. I tried beveling it before adding the sphere but since it had 16 vertices at point of attachment, I couldn't add it.

These are the edges that I want to bevel.

Example of edges to bevel

I also tried mean crease but same issue. I actually tried beveling before adding the sphere but was not able to blend them together since the beveled mesh has 16 vertices and couldn't really figure it out.

  • $\begingroup$ Could you upload your file with blend-exchange.com ? I'm pretty sure your topology is bad somewhere and it prevents you to bevel more than what you showed us. $\endgroup$

You could extrude from 4 faces of your sphere:

Then bevel:

Create this topology:

Add this edge loop to avoid the pinching:

Result with the Subdivision Surface:

For the object you share, maybe remove this edge loop:

  • $\begingroup$ You couldn't get it to work, but at what step do you fail exactly? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It looks weird with pinches even after adding supporting loops $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you mean, you can perfectly bevel on the second object (don't forget to recalculate the normals, they are flipped): zupimages.net/up/24/12/2mh6.gif then rearrange the topology as shown $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ After bevelling you need to correct the topology with the knife (K) or with some joins (J), see my images $\endgroup$
