Bevel or 3D FX and corner issues

Recommended Posts

Hey all!  I’m trying to learn this program by copying existing Logos (i thought it would be a good exercise!)

i chose to tackle the Toyota one, as it looked sorta simple at first.

i’ve attached my working file as well as a jpg, with circles on my current problem

Now i know this is pretty rough, and I haven’t figured out all my shapes very well, BUT i can’t figure out why the 3D FX is rounding the corner of the bevel instead of keeping it sharp!


anything i’m missing?!


Thanks very much!

Hi Kylegb,

After going over this effect with a member of the QA team, it does appear you are not missing anything and it's just how the effect is built up. 

This would make for a good improvement to the effect.  It's possible i've missed a method of doing this that i'm not aware off, so for now i'll leave this post here as it has a better chance of being seen by other users who may know of a method to get the same effect.  I can get this moved over to Feature requests in the next day or so or feel free to make a seperate post :)

Thanks, Stokerg!  I appreciate you trying to trouble shoot for me!  Would you be willing to move it over to the feature request forum when you have time?  Thanks again!
