Solidify glitches on beveled object

Hey guys,

I'm currently working on a 3d model, but I ran into a problem I do not know how to solve. I have made a simple example to show what I mean. As you can see, the beveled edges result in very ugly glitches when I add a solidify modifier. I've tried recalculating the normals and removing doubles and possible ugly geometry, but it didn't work. I would really appreciate it if someone could give some suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

PS: it looks like I have an ngon on the angle on the corner, but it is just 2 quads that look as one by the wire view in object mode.

    Hey Bauke, try increasing the Clamp value. If that doesn't help, you'll probably just need to apply the modifier and fix up the edges manually. 

  • if you're inferring there's an issue w/ your model or the Solidify, it doesn't look like it to me - the issue is you're asking the Solidify to produce a thickness that's too thick for the curve you've modelled.

  • Thank you for your reply! Changing the clamp calue didn't help in this case, unfortunately, so I will just do it manually, like you said :).
