Filleting means rounding a shape edge.
Shapes that can be filleted are lines, polylines, continuous lines, circles, arcs, ellipses, elliptical arcs, B-Splines, infinite lines and rays.
The following 3 methods can be used to fillet a shape.
- Specifying 2 shapes and filleting these endpoints.
- Specifying polyline and filleting all vertexes.
- Filleting one vertex of multiple lines, polyline, continuous line, rectangle, or polygon.
To display a command parameter to be executed, click / of command parameters, or press Tab key or ← / → key on the keyboard.
- Click [Fillet] on [Edit] menu.
Then you will be able to fillet a shape.
|▪||You can enter into the shape filleting status by clicking on [Edit] toolbar.|
When specifying two shapes
- Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Shape], and click the first shape to be filleted.
- Click the second shape to be filleted.
When specifying polyline
- Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Polyline].
- Click a polyline to be filleted.
When specifying vertex
- Switch the parameter on Command Window to [Vertex].
- Click a vertex to be filleted.
- Specify a trimming method for shapes when filleting in [Trim Method] on Command Window.
Trim Both Shapes
The selected 2 shapes and their vertexes will be trimmed to the endpoint of the specified fillet arc.
Trim One Shape
A one line forming the first selected shape and vertex will be trimmed to the endpoint of the specified fillet arc.
The selected 2 shapes and their vertexes will be filleted without trimming.
- Input a radius of filleted arcs in [Radius] box on Command Window.
The shape will be filleted at the endpoint of the specified fillet arc.
|▪||When a circle, ellipse, or closed B-Spline is selected, it will not be trimmed when filleting even though [Trim Both Shapes] or [Trim One Shape] is specified.|
