FilletXpert Add PropertyManager

The FilletXpert PropertyManager appears when you click FilletXpert in the Fillet PropertyManager. The FilletXpert can create and edit constant radius fillets only. Use the Add tab to create new constant radius fillets. The PropertyManager remembers its last used state.

Two PropertyManager toggle buttons are available:
  • Manual. Use this PropertyManager to maintain control at the feature level.
  • FilletXpert (Constant radius fillets only). Use this PropertyManager when you want the SolidWorks software to manage the structure of the underlying features.
When you edit a fillet using Edit Feature, the Fillet PropertyManager appears with no toggle buttons.

To access the FilletXpert, click Fillet (Features toolbar) or Insert > Features > Fillet/Round and in the PropertyManager, click FilletXpert.

Some fields that accept numeric input allow you to create an equation by entering = ( equal sign) and selecting global variables, functions, and file properties from a drop-down list. See Direct Input of Equations.
