Fillet formula for degrees

 From: Bob (PHOTON713) 11 May 2011  (1 of 6)
 Good Afternoon, all... I recall early on that there was a formula used to provide a fillet amount for degrees in field 1 and the known depth in field 2. Does anyone remember that formula? It was a trig function that I believe used cosines? Thanks

 4260.2 In reply to 4260.1 Hi Bob, you mean for chamfering? There is one tutorial that Danny did that uses a formula for chamfering here: http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=2662.6 The video tutorial is here: http://cid-30cffdfa97399495.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/Accurate|_Tapers|_MoI|_V2.zip There's also a similar thing about using a formula to determine the offset distance to use to get a particular draft angle, check out these posts for that one: http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=941.5 http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=941.6 That second one uses Offset + Loft to make a result with a particular draft angle, and the formula gives you the offset distance required to match a particular angle. Let me know if neither of those is what you were after. - Michael

 4260.3 In reply to 4260.2 Good Evening, Michael... Thanks for the info, and yes, I did mean chamfering. I knew it was in some tutorial that I had seen. I continue to use MOI for designing my line of horseshoes. I'm currently evaluating a series of 6 designs that I call my "Tribute" series. It honors all of the 5 military services and the Vietnam Veteran. I haven't found a single thing that I've wanted to do that MOI couldn't handle. I'm having a great time with sweeps and lofts, fillets and chamfers, etc. If there was one thing that I would add to my wish list, it would be a dialog that allowed me to make a few notes to tag along with my files. I have over 500 files that reflect various stages during the design process and it's difficult to name them uniquely for meaning. Thank you for a wonderful piece of software. Regards...Bob
