Sketching Sketch Fillets

To create a fillet in a sketch:

  1. In an open sketch, click Sketch Fillet Tool_Sketch_Fillet_Sketch.gif on the Sketch toolbar, or Tools > Sketch Tools > Fillet.
  2. Set the properties in the Sketch Fillet PropertyManager.
  3. Select the sketch entities to fillet.

    You can select non-intersecting entities. The entities are extended at a virtual intersection, and the corner is filleted.

    To select the sketch entities, you can select two sketch entities or select a corner.
