I published a new script, RoundCorner 2.0
, which does true rounding at corners (and keep te Sharp mode). You may consider to use this script instead.

Here is a script that typically would round the edges and corners of a cube. As I still don't get the subtle differences between Bevel and Chamfer, I simply called it RoundEdge
. The picture below gives some idea of what it intends to do.
There's still a lot of work to do, as you can guess that the topological situations are numerous enough that you have to treat many cases. So this is very a first version, with profiles of the rounding shape generated with Bezier
curves, to ensure the tangency at the intersection with original faces.
Though I am not totally sure, I anticipate that the tool can be extended to support custom profiles.
Doc is attached in PDF in the subfolder RDE_DIR (only in English for the time being).
It should work in Sketchup v5 and v6, and on PC or Mac (thanks to confirm). As usual, the button coming in the toolbar is my own artistic design (I guess you would notice anyway
