# I have an edge that does not bevel as expected, what might be wrong?

Here is video of the problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rAeFdRckN0

What might be wrong with those edge to bevel in such way?

• Can you upload the file? Jul 11, 2016 at 15:34
• @OmarAhmad When suggesting that someone should upload a file it is better to suggest where they should upload it. blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com is the preferred location. Jul 11, 2016 at 16:23
• I've just gotta say, we've been getting a lot of low-quality questions from new users lately... but this one is really good. It's a generic question, simply and clearly asked, with sufficient supporting information, and without editorializing. Good job, @EvgeniPetrov

Beveling ngons (faces with more than 4 vertices) is not a good idea : results are not really predictable.

Here is a view of the inner geometry with triangles (on the right) :

The upper part of your mesh is good, but the ngon part does not allow to manipulate it well (for beveling, for instance).

So for a good bevel, you should redo this part with quads only (faces composed of 4 vertices), the same way you modeled the upper part.

Also take care of the bottom part (on the left) which is composed of 5 vertices.

To 'repair' the mesh

• Go to edit mode
• First of all, select all and remove double vertices (some are doubled)
• Set face selection mode by Ctrl + Tab then face
• Select the two faces which are ngons then delete this faces (X then 'only faces')

• Set vertices selection mode by Ctrl + tab then 'vertex'
• Select the vertices like below in order to count them (here 18)

• Give 18 cut on the bottom part (Ctrl+R then Page Up 17 times)

• Select the top and bottom vertices on one side (without the extremities)
• Then Ctrl+E and 'bridge edge loops'

• Do the same for the other side

Now we have this below, so simply complete the faces for the extremities.

• Beveling :

• ....and this is a good, clear, simple answer, too. Good job.

• Is there easy way to seperate face to more faces? Jul 12, 2016 at 13:08

• Wow! Thank you for the great answer! "Bridge Edge Loops" is what I really was looking forward, did it manually :/ Jul 12, 2016 at 14:43
• @EvgeniPetrov, doing it manually can be fast too if you use the 'F2' addon (mesh_f2.py) Jul 12, 2016 at 14:51
