InsetFix Modifier

16 votes

An inset-by-SG type modifier that works similar to Chamfer modifier when set to zero tension. However, the max chamfer modifier is highly topology dependent and doesn't work well with diagonal and unconnected edges. This modifier fixes that behavior:

The insetFixChamferStack scripted modifier automates the process of using the InsetSGFix modifier with a Chamfer modifier for a quick and clean rounded edges effect.
