Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding multiple bevels, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
As promised, in this video, we're going to look at how to create multiple…bevels, and also a few creative reasons why you might want to do that,…one of them being this cool effect here.…Maybe it's just me; maybe that's not that great,…but I think that's so cool to be able to create this cool texture with multiple bevels.…Anyways, go to Bevel Offset Start, and let's go ahead, and select the Element…layer, click Scene Setup,…and that's all that we're dealing with here; just some 3D text.…Regular old 3D text.…First, I'm going to show you the real use for multiple bevels,…and that way, if you don't want to see my stupid little example, you could just…close the tutorial, and move along.…
But let's go ahead and we'll click on this shiny texture,…and as you could see here, we just have this one texture, we have our Bevel settings,…but what really makes this cool is when we actually click on the model itself,…then we could see that there is a Bevel Copies dropdown.…By default, it's set to 1.…If we take this up to 2, it actually creates a second texture on this object.…
