Fillet Edge

The FilletEdge command creates a tangent surface between polysurface edges with varying radius values then trims and joins the original faces to the fillet surfaces.

Steps

  1. Select edges.
  2. Select handles.

Note

Command-line options

ShowRadius

Yes

Displays radius handles in the viewport.

No

Hides radius handles in the viewport. A hidden radius handle will display when the mouse cursor is close to it.

NextRadius

Specifies the radius for the next handle.

ChainEdges

Automatically selects curves that are touching the selected curve.

How to chain select edges.

FaceEdges

FaceEdges

Activates a face selection step.

FaceEdges steps

  1. At the prompt, select polysurface faces, and press Enter.
    Edges of the selected faces are added to the set of edges to fillet.
  2. Add or remove edges.
  3. Select and adjust handles, and press Enter.

PreviousEdgeSelection

In cases where the command is canceled or ended prematurely, the PreviousEdgeSelection option re-selects the previously selected edges. Supports multiple sets of previously selected edges for up 20 previous edge sets.

TrimAndJoin

Trims and joins the resulting surface to the input surfaces.

History only works if TrimAndJoin=No.

SelectEdges

Allows selecting more edges after the selection has been closed.

Preview

Displays a dynamic preview. You can change the options and the preview will update.

Edit

Allows changing the radius of existing fillets.

To edit fillets

  1. Select the object to edit.
    The filleted edges highlight.
  2. Select the edges to fillet.
  3. Select the edges you want to change.
    This can include previously unfilleted edges on the object.
  4. Select the fillet handles to change and enter new values.

To remove a fillet

  1. Select the object to edit.
    The filleted edges highlight.
  2. Use Ctrl+click to select the edges where you want to remove the fillet, and press Enter.

The Radius and Distance options appear on the command line when you drag a handle grip.

Radius/Distance options

FromCurve

Select a curve. The radius of the curve at the picked location will be used.

FromTwoPoints

Pick two points to show the radius distance.

 
Handle options

AddHandle

Adds a handle along the edges.

CopyHandle

Adds a new handle using the distance from the selected handle.

RemoveHandle

Visible only when at least one handle has been added.

SetAll

Sets the distance or radius for all handles.

LinkHandles

Editing a single handle updates all handles.

Note

RailType options

DistFromEdge

The distance from the edge curves determines the intersection.

RollingBall

The radius of a rolling ball determines the intersection.

DistBetweenRails

The distance between the edge rails determines the intersection.
