Chamfering contiguous edges with different values
on Feb 1, 2014 at 10:33:55 pm

Hi everybody,

I'm a 2D artist wanting to learn to use 3Ds max, so I beg your pardon if my question seems very odd.

First of all, I want you to know exactly what I'm trying to create. To start with something "not so hard", I'm trying to reproduce a 3D model of my Nintendo 3DS XL (first object I had in sight :p).

So basically, the Nintendo 3DS is a box with chamfered edges, and there is my problem.

As you can see here: http://dc942d419843af05523b-ff74ae13537a01be6cfec5927837dcfe.r14.cf1.rackcd... the edges are not all the same.

So I created my box and chamfered edges this way:

But now I need to chamfer the other edges, with different values since they are less chamfered, and 3Ds max just doesn't want to do that, the chamfering does nothing when I'm trying to chamfer an edge contiguous to the two already chamfered.

Here's what I want to do on the other edges:


So, since I'm new to 3Ds max, I'm pretty sure there is a way to do this, but I can't find how, and after googling this issue, I found nothing about it...

Thanks in advance
