We need, again, Custom Bevels in 3D-Extrude & Bevel, please!
Illustrator used to have the ability to create customer Bevel profiles ( in the Bevels.ai file in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator 23/en_US/Symbols ). HOWEVER, the feature is now gone! Please give us the option to create custom Bevels, again! Thank you.
Last year, 2018, I created a object and gave it a 3D custom bevel, and now I can do nothing with that object. Whenever I try to do something with it Illustrator crashes. I couldn't figure out what was going on until I tried creating a custom Bevel again. There is no way to create a custom Bevel! When I open the "Bevels.ai" file from last year, I can see the custom Bevel profile I created in the Symbols panel, but it's nowhere to be found in the Effect-3D Bevels list.
It's OK, Mark, it happens sometimes.
The video is not mine, but thanks :)
THANK YOU, Egor! I was modifying the wrong "Bevels.ai" file (there are several all over the place). Adobe has changed the location of the "Bevels.ai" file which actually works.
Thank you for that video, as well.
There's a way to add custom bevel, Mark.
Go to Adobe Illustrator CC 2019/Support Files/Resources/en_US (or whatever your language is)
Open Bevel.ai. Open Symbols. Duplicate any existing symbol and change it to one you want. Resave, relaunch. Now you will have your profile in 3D Extrude options.

It's OK-ish way to do it, so I won't vote for you request though.
