Example: Overflow Type

Default The system chooses one of the following options, depending on the geometry conditions (convexity of edges being filleted and the adjacent edges, and so on).
Keep edge Maintains the integrity of adjacent linear edges. However, the fillet surface is broken into separate surfaces, and in many cases the top edge of the fillet may have a dip in it.
Keep surface Uses the adjacent surface to trim the fillet. As a result, the fillet edge is continuous and smooth, but the adjacent edge is disturbed.
