While working on a complex part, the rounds applied keep bumping up against each other and providing inconsistent results. What should I do?
That can happen in complex parts. Try modeling the base shape in Synchronous, then RMB click on the Synchrounous Bar in the Pathfinder on the left side of the screen, and "Tranistion to Ordered".
Applying the rounds in the Ordered mode will maintain your overall design intent.
