AMa_ChamferMaker is a generator plugin that allows you to add
beveled edges to any 3D object, procedural or polygonal, while
keeping the object manager tree fully procedural. This means, you
can get nice accentuated edges that will make your renders look
much more realistic while keeping the power to change things after
It also has a few extra tricks under its sleeve for dealing with
geometry a bit more complicated.
Compile and install to CINEMA 4D's plugin folder

plugin directory, under the main installation path (as opposed to
the plugin folder found in user prefs). This is because all paths
relevant to the compiler/linker are set up relative to the main
Go to the Plugins menu, choose AMa_ChamferMaker.
This will instantiate the generator object in the Object Manager.
From hereon you can put the model objects you want bevelled under the
generator object just as you would with any generator (e.g. a HyperNURBS).
In the generators Attribute Manager interface set the targeting mode
and bevel away.
