"Face-face" fillet?

S1monS1mon Member Posts: 2,359 PRO
Other CAD systems have the concept of a face-face fillet where you chose two faces (which don't need to intersect or be solid) and it constructs a fillet between then. In some cases, you'll need to tell it which direction to try to apply the fillet because there is more than one possible solution.

Onshape has a full-round which requires a third reference, but is missing a face-face fillet. 

Is there a custom FeatureScript out there which does face-face fillets?

I also did a quick search and didn't see and references or improvement requests for this.

    Maybe I didn’t understand your question, but i know a feature C2C Full Round Fillet. Do you know it?

    I'm very familiar with the full round feature.

    Here's the help for the Solidworks version of what I'm looking for.

    I voted for it. I've missed it sometimes.

    I think @angelo_scozzarella talked about our FS Full round (Our company previuos name was Close 2 circle --> C2C)

    This FS is still usefull in some cases, such as when working with sheet metal parts, where the Onshape feature doesn't work.

    But it doesn't solve the face-face fillet
    In this case, maybe you can use delete face and then fillet

    @emagdalenaC2i
    That's an interesting FeatureScript, and useful for sheetmetal, but it would not solve the issue I was having. 

    If I could get delete face/heal to work, I would have done that. Where a Face-Face fillet is especially useful is when the underlying faces don't want to extend to intersect, but a large enough fillet will fill the gap or replace the faces that are in between.
