Invoking the FeatureXpert

The FilletXpert automatically calls the FeatureXpert when it has trouble placing a fillet on the specified geometry.

To automatically invoke the FeatureXpert while using the FilletXpert Add tab:

  1. In the FilletXpert PropertyManager, click the Add tab.
  2. Select items to fillet for Edges, Faces, Features and Loops . In this example you select the two faces shown.

  3. Set the Radius , in this example to .25, and click Apply.

    The FilletXpert automatically calls the FeatureXpert to create the fillet. The FeatureXpert knows that it must create multiple fillets, and does so.

  4. Box select the entire model to capture all faces, then click Apply.

    The FilletXpert fillets the entire model with .25 inch radius fillets, automatically invoking the FeatureXpert to resolve the fillets.
