SubD Bevel Vertices and Mirror

Hello there does anyone know how Rhino SubD can make bevel vertices and mirror (with merging ability) like that in Maya?

Thank you so much !



I’m pretty sure that’s not possible yet.

You can use Reflect (SubD > Symmetry > Reflect) for that. When you’re done modelling, you can use RemoveSymmetry and the original and mirrored parts will be automatically joined and welded.

Do you have an example of what you mean by SubD bevel vertices? All i can find on Maya’s Bevel acts on SubD edges, the same way that Rhino’s SubD _Bevel command works.

Thank you I will try that !!

Here’s an example:

The middle vertex that has 4 adjacent faces gets bevelled, and a new quad face is thus created.

The adjacent faces become ngons.

Hello Pierre yes I have attached 2 images

( image credit: Marianna cabugueira of Zaha Hadids)

In the image with red marks, the circled areas ( among the rest ) are done by beveling vertices which kind of makes a vertex splits itself up like chamfering.
A value of 0-1 can be set in Maya ( I think 1 is the max distance by ratio)

Is there a way to achieve this kind of result in SubD? Honestly I would stick to SubD if I can.

In the second image without the red marks ( credit: Design Morphine) this was also done in Maya but I am not sure by which technique but it would be nice to know again, if this sort of surfaces can be achieved in SubD.

Thanks !


Thanks that’s what I am looking for, which command did you used? I have just put up a image to Mr Pierre showing the results I would like to achieve via SubD.


This is tracked internally here: RH-46804 Bevel: by vertex selection.


I see does that mean it will be available in future ? Thanks
