Used to construct a circular fillet (arc) between two elements (lines, line strings, circular arcs, circles, or shapes), two segments of a line string, or two sides of a shape.
When you construct a circular fillet between two segments of a line string, the line string is broken into two independent line strings and arc. When you construct a circular fillet between two sides of a shape, the shape is broken into a line string and an arc.
You can access this tool from the following:
|| Sets the fillet's radius.
|| Sets which side(s) are truncated.
- None — Neither element or segment is truncated.
- Both — Both elements or segments are truncated at their point of tangency with the fillet. If a fillet is constructed between two closed elements or an open and a closed element, the closed element(s) are not modified.
- First — The first element or segment selected (step 2) is truncated at its point of tangency with the fillet.
In 3D, for two both elements to be filleted, they must be on the same plane.
To construct a 3D fillet between two surfaces, use the Fillet Surface along Curves tool.
To construct a 3D fillet along an edge of a solid, use the Fillet Edges tool.
