  1. I don't want to be mean but there is nothing perfect on that image. The left edge and left part of the bottom edge are all jagged... It struck me immediately, so maybe to an untrained eye it will be perfect.

    • Your method is limited by the topology. You can't bevel beyond the constraints of the surrounding topology.

      With the method I show in the video, the bevel can be of any size, I do sometimes use your workflow if topology permits, but I would always still use the normals method shown in my video to ensure perfect shading and reflections.

      Here's an example of a model I made with the techniques I show in the video:

      It's not completely destructive, it's pretty easy to remove bevels and change the shape of extrusions.
