Only one edge per fillet?

ron_morelandron_moreland Member Posts: 79 ✭✭
I have a shape I'm trying to apply a fillets to 2 corners. One corner is fine, when I add the second corner, the fillet fails to generate. Is this normal behavior?

    It may depend on the raidius or other topology. Do you have a screenshot or a link to the model? 

    You should be able to use one fillet command to fillet hundreds of edges. 

    But you can't fillet an edge that is created by the same fillet comand. In those cases you need a second fillet feature

    Makes no difference with tangent prop, radius, cross section type.

    change Measurement from "Width" to "Radius"

    Not, sure, I've never used 'width' mode

    I have found width mode to be quite flaky and picky about it will accept, not sure why. It was added pretty recently and I think the math is a lot more complicated but unless you need to use the width style fillet specifically I would stick with "Radius" mode!

    I'm usually in favor of feature UI remembering the previous selection, but this might be one case where I actually don't want that. It can still make me do a double take when some basic fillet fails and I've forgotten to change it back to Radius. That said, I love the width option and use it pretty often, mostly for aesthetic reasons.
