Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the bevel tools, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Many times we'll want to refine the edges of…objects, and typically, we'll want to bevel those edges.…In other words, round off the corners of an object.…And we can do this using the edge bevel tool.…So let's go ahead and play a little bit more with our coffee cup.…I'm going to select some edges here, and let's…just go ahead and round the top of this cup.…So if I select anything along this top edge…and double-click on it, it will select the edge loop.…
And we're going to go ahead and bevel that.…So, let's go ahead and go Edit Mesh > Bevel.…Now we have several options here.…If you want we can use them here or we can use them afterwards in the object history.…Now we have the offset type, do we want fractional?…In other words, do we want it to be a proportion…of it, or do we want it to be an absolute number?…Typically I like fractional.…And then the width of the bevel.…In other words, how far into each opposite edge does it go?…So in this case it's 0.5 or 50%, so it'll…go halfway into this edge and halfway into that edge.…
