Adding Features Using FeatureXpert

To add features using the FeatureXpert:

  1. Open a part to which you want to add fillets. In this example, you want to add a fillet to two faces.
  2. Click Fillet Tool_Fillet_Features.gif (Features toolbar) or Insert > Features > Fillet/Round.
  3. In the PropertyManager:
    1. Select Constant radius for Fillet Type.
    2. Set the Radius PM_Radius.gif value.
      The radius value you set affects whether you can add the fillet without the FeatureXpert.
    3. Select the two red faces for Edges, Faces, Features and Loops PM_Edges_Faces_Features_and_Loops.gif.
    4. Click PM_OK.gif.
      The What's Wrong dialog appears. The fillet error is highlighted in the dialog with a description why the fillet is failing. The fillet cannot be applied as an individual fillet for geometric reasons.
  4. In the dialog, click FeatureXpert.
    The FeatureXpert creates multiple fillets instead of one fillet that contains both faces. The FeatureManager design tree displays the fillets.
