Items To Fillet
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 dropdown list. See
Direct Input of Equations.

Edges, Faces, Features and Loops 
Select entities to fillet in the graphics area. 

Tangent propagation 
Extends the fillet to all faces that are tangent to the selected face. Example: Tangent Propagation 

Full preview 
Displays a fillet preview of all edges. 

Partial preview 
Displays a fillet preview of one edge only. Press the A key to view each fillet preview in turn. 

No Preview 
Improves rebuild time with complex models. 
Variable Radius Parameters

Radius 
Sets the fillet radius. 

Attached Radii 
Lists the vertices of the edges selected under Items to Fillet for Edges, Faces, Features and Loops , and lists control points you selected in the graphics area.


Set Unassigned 
Applies the current Radius to all items that do not have assigned radii under Attached Radii .


Set All 
Applies the current Radius to all items under Attached Radii .


Number of Instances 
Sets the number of control points on the edges. 

Smooth transition 
Creates a fillet that changes smoothly from one radius to another when matching a fillet edge to the adjacent face.


Straight transition 
Creates a fillet that changes from one radius to another linearly without matching edge tangency with an adjacent fillet.

Fillet Options
Select through faces 
Enables selection of edges through faces that hide edges. 
Overflow type 
Controls the way fillets on single closed edges (circles, splines, ellipses for example) act when they meet edges. Example: Overflow Type. Select one of the following:
Default

The application selects the Keep edge or Keep surface option.

Keep edge

The model edge remains unchanged, while the fillet adjusts.

Keep surface

The fillet edge adjusts to be continuous and smooth, while the model edge changes to match the fillet edge.
