KT bevel is a visual effect (like bump mapping), so real bevel will always be better. You need a vertex welding before use of KT bevel.
Hard to say what's best os SU bevel tools, but I like RoundCorner by Fredo6 too http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtop ... 23&t=20485

I fully agree with Notareal on this... :thumbup:

Thanks for replying, the direct link and the confirmation. I had seen the "[Plugin] RoundCorner" by Fred06 mentioned but, as usual for me, did not make the best choice. SOoooo....., backup, start over and do it again.

True bevel is a bit of a pain.
Have you try exporting skp to 3ds.
and bevel it in Wings 3d?
Might save you time if model is complex.

Thanks for the suggestion! If I try to take on much more which I know nothing about (3ds and Wings 3d) I might become suicidal. I am just about worn out trying to get a very basic grasp of SU and KT. It is a me thing-nothing wrong with the programs.

I now have Fred06.s "[Plugin] RoundCorner" and for what little I have done it worked perfectly-almost like magic. Seems like a MUST HAVE for everyone using SU.

I completely agree with all that has been said above.
Fredo6 is just a MUST HAVE.
I have also a "round edge by bezier" plugin that works quite well.

I've been using Poseray with quite success for this purpose in my recent experiments with that program.
It's fast, efficient and can be good enough in many cases.

The workflow :
- export simple "boxed object" as OBJ (or SU2KT + KT2OBJ)
- load it into Poseray
- weld the vertices
- subdivide 2 or 3 times as "flat"
- subdivide once more as "smooth"
- export "rounded object" back into KT

It may sound a long process but it only takes a few seconds to do it all straight (just a few clicks).
It's real fast because you have no modeling at all.
On another hand the mesh is much denser than if you do it by hand in SU...
... but at least it keeps the SU scene simple !
