I'm making a Nintendo NES console. I'm using the latest version of blender, 2.9. All the other versions before this wouldn't work either.

I have modeled the ENTIRE console, but when i add the bevel modifier, nothing happens, literally nothing, the edges are still just as sharp and i see no effect when i try to add segments. I even tried to bevel it manually with CTRL + B, it works but i can't bevel a big complicated model with that many verts, even when i select the whole object and do the CTRL + B it ends up bad. what exactly is the problem? Also the bevel modifier works with simple cubes and simple shaped objects that don't have so many cuts in them but that's it. I researched tons and couldn't find anything. Here is my NES, it looks ok, but it is too sharp on the edges, not smooth like the real console. When I apply the bevel modifier, it still looks exactly like this with no change.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ It's probably/mostly duplicate somewhere around here so I will not make an answer for this, and that would allow to upvote/accept answer. $\endgroup$
