I want to take the pointedness out my corners by blunting them. i want turn the corner vertices into 3. Imagine my drawing to be a corner of a cube...

I tried to bevel using CTRL-SHIFT-B but it changes so much of the surrounding geometry.. too many side effects for what I want.

Thanks for any insight.

The bevel tool can do exactly what you want, just make sure "vertex only" is enabled and "segments" is set to 1:

ctrlshiftb works fine. But you need to make sure, your surrounding geometry has good topology. If you bevel the vertex of a non-planar face for example, the silhouette of your object may chance dramatically.

First two bevels on planar faces, the third one is non-planar.
