Registered by Pablo Trabajos on 2008-07-22

Here are some ideas:
* Adds bevel.
* Allows the change of bevel color.
* Allows the change of the light color.
* Light direction and height.
* Inner or outer bevel.
* Other stuff.

Whiteboard

Jazzynico, 2010-05-07.
Already possible via the filters effects.

A tool for parametrized bevels (implemented as live path effect) like e.g. <http://www.xaraxone.com/webxealot/workbook62/workbook_2.htm> goes beyond what current preset bevel filter effects in Inkscape offer:
- on-canvas editing of parameters (Inner/Outer Bevel width, Light Angle control, …)
- bevel tool controls bar (Type; Light: Contrast, Angle, Size, Elevation; Bevel: Inner, Outer; Join: Miter, Round, Beveled; …)
- option to turn the live effect into editable shapes (mainly of value for technical drawings; not possible if the bevel is rendered as SVG filter effect)
- drag and drop colors/gradients for shading (including a Conical fill gradient)
- different filter effects applied to the bevel and the inner fill
- …
