Fillet Surface

You can use a fillet to smooth the edge between two adjacent faces in a surface body that meet at an angle.

Select a Partial preview, a Full preview, or No preview in the Fillet PropertyManager. You can preview all fillet types.

Constant radius surface fillet with Full preview

Constant radius surface fillet applied

Multiple radius surface fillet with Partial preview

Multiple radius surface fillet applied

Surface filleting works the same as filleting solid bodies with a few exceptions.

You can do the following:

  • Fillet the edges of a surface body.

  • Make multiple radius surface fillets.

  • Make fillets between two surfaces, or face fillets.

  • Add setback parameters to the surface fillets.

  • Make surface fillets with hold lines.

  • Trim or keep the filleted surfaces in a face fillet.

  • Make a variable radius fillet on a surface .

  • Click Reverse Face Normal for a face set to reverse the fillet direction.

You cannot do the following:

  • Preserve a cut in a surface body with the Keep features option.

  • Select a surface to fillet by feature from the FeatureManager design tree.

To fillet edges on a surface body:

  1. Click Fillet on the Features toolbar or Insert, Surface, Fillet/Round.

  1. Set the PropertyManager options.

  2. Click OK .
