[Q] Edge Softening Issue

Hi Everyone.

I have question about Edge Softening - is it angle dependant ? Theres no info in manual about that.

It seams that it doesnt work below certain angle. I have slopes on building roof but roof i coated with bitumen so edges should be softened. I tried out also extractrender mesh and welding to taste but in this case nrm smoothing blurs totaly creases.

Any idea? I know i can use filets but i’d rather like easier - non destrictive workflow in this case.

Hi DW - I’ll fool around and test a little here but if the angle is shallow, the radius will need to be larger than you might expect to show - also, the radius is sort of relative in ‘EdgeSoftening’, not really accurate.

V6/WIP softens much more effectively at shallow angles in my quick tests just now.


Hi Pascal. Thanks for checking this. Maybe there should be also threshold range parameter to choose how shallow/wide angle it will affect.
