I would like to be able to make a round corner on a curve similar to chamfer in 4D, like a smoothly bent tube? I've found and added the add-on Simple Curves but don't know how to do it? Or maybe I don't need the add-on?

    $\begingroup$ Use the Bevel Tool or the Bevel Modifier. Also when referring to tools from other programs it helps if you show images that illustrate the function you are looking for. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jan 26 '18 at 16:20
  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton both tools only work on meshes, not on Bezier curve points. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 26 '18 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ Pretty cool, didn't know this addon, it as some useful tools. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 26 '18 at 18:09

    $\begingroup$ @cegaton You right, that's another way to do it. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Pal Bergstrom Jan 26 '18 at 19:31

If we are talking about this Simple Curves add-on:

First of all Install add-on from file, check it to have it enabled and Save settings.

enter image description here

  1. In Edit Mode find Misc tab in Tool Shelf.
  2. Select Curve point.
  3. Choose Fillet.
  4. Tweak Radius.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't see the Misc option. $\endgroup$ – Pal Bergstrom Jan 26 '18 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ @PalBergstrom check my edit. $\endgroup$ – cgslav Jan 26 '18 at 17:58
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks but I don't see it. Maybe it doesn't work in 2,79. $\endgroup$ – Pal Bergstrom Jan 26 '18 at 19:30
  • $\begingroup$ @PalBergstrom I'll need you to show me some screenshots. I've also 2.79 and everything is working as you can see above. Double check which add-on you have activated Simple Curve or Simple Curves? Check again the one from my edit. $\endgroup$ – cgslav Jan 26 '18 at 19:33
  • $\begingroup$ Works. That was it. I confused them. Thank you for your help. $\endgroup$ – Pal Bergstrom Jan 27 '18 at 0:42
