Ik I already asked a lot of questions today, but im trying to make a 3d model from scratch and running into a lot of problems, I'm trying to do this: enter image description here

This is from a youtube tutorial but this happens when i try to use the bevel tool on mine enter image description here

here is my blender file:

and here is the YouTube tutorial I was following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BANJc53Eik

  • $\begingroup$ The bevel tool doesn't like corners where three or more edges connect. $\endgroup$ Jun 4, 2016 at 22:46
  • $\begingroup$ Try using the Inset Faces tool instead. It looks like that's what was used in the first image. $\endgroup$ Jun 4, 2016 at 22:48
  • $\begingroup$ oh~ he said in the video that he used the bevel tool but it never worked for me. I'll try that though. Although I never heard of it so it will probably take longer than it should for me to solve the problem. Thanks for the quick response though $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm not 100% sure but I think blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com is the preferred method for uploading blend files. $\endgroup$

What you need to do, is remove doubles. You have 36 doubled vertices in your model, and that is what is giving you problems it seems. After doing this, bevel gives no issues. Tab into edit mode, then select all, and press W>remove doubles. Then proceed to bevel, and you shouldn't have any problems.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks!! I was finally able to continue with it. I am really new and no almost nothing about 3d modeling so I had no idea what doubles were. Thanks to your help I was able to finally delete it. $\endgroup$
