    Can you add another bevel to the outer edges of the first bevel in this case? So that the edges of the carved out area would be smooth.

    Thank you! It's very interesting. Could you share the project file as it contains a lot of interesting moments?

    40 or 50 clicks and a dozen or so adjustments for a single panel line seems inefficient - not sure I would call this quick or easy.

    Thank you for the tutorial. Could you tell - if there is among created nodes the parameter allowing us to make Shatter not inside of geometry, but outside?
