In graphic design, bevel refers to an effect in which the outer edges of a graphic

, a model or a text are bevelled and emphasised by means of highlights and shadows. The representation thus creates the impression of three-dimensionality. In bevel models, adjacent surfaces are not perpendicular to each other; surfaces arranged at right angles are connected to each other by inserted bevels.
