2d Bevel is a modified version of bwidth that is specialized for 2d shapes.

90% of the time this tool is followed with tThick
2d Bevel use cases

After initial setup it is able to also be adjusted via bwidth.
Enabling 2d Bevel
This option may be pro level option. So if it is not seen in operations, enable pro mode in preferences.
