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. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton both tools only work on meshes, not on Bezier curve points. $\endgroup$ Jan 26, 2018 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ Pretty cool, didn't know this addon, it as some useful tools. $\endgroup$ Jan 26, 2018 at 18:09

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.

final

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks but I don't see it. Maybe it doesn't work in 2,79. $\endgroup$ Jan 26, 2018 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. $\endgroup$
