Good thing I made a note about this. Keep forgetting about that.

I noticed, a 'Bevel Edge' command would be very useful. It works like beveling vertices, just with edges. Let me give you an example.

Gentlemen, this is a cube.


What we want to do is to bevel this edge


To make it look like that


If we would bevel both vertices, it would rather look like that


Beveling the edge can be basically done by splitting all adjacent edges and connecting the newly created vertices...


...Delete the polygons between these new edges...


...and fill the new vertices.

Now, it would be great if you could just select the edge, hit 'bevel' and be able to drag around just like in the bevel vertices command, to make the newly created polygon bigger or smaller.

I have actually given edge bevelling some thoughts already as I really want it to be part of DeleD. Your example should be relatively easy to implement. However, I have yet to think about how to go about things when multiple adjacent edges are selected. Any comments about that kind of situation are greatly appreciated! Smile
