how to fillet this one?

a very simple path, but I am not able to fillet this one (except by adding 2 points and deleting the corner point, but I don't get the accuracy I am after).
I want a fillet of 0.5 cm here, which is small enough to fit between the existing points.

any ideas?

tnx

Hi:hope to understand correctly your question,if not please forgive me :)

draw a circle radius 0.5cm






trim the curve using the circle





do it again





delete trimmed part






select both and hit -BLEND-



on FRONT VIEW seems ok or maybe not.....just an idea :)

Thanks Mauro,

I know this technique, but I had other non planar curves in the design that I could simply fillet with the fillet tool, without problems, so I was wondering why this one did not work properly.

apparently, if non planar straight lines are filleted, it works, but if there is a smooth curve involved, the fillet tool does not work. 2 straight lines in a crooked angle are still planar, I realize now, even if they are not parallel with x, y or z.

Hi Wim, yes for curve filleting the curves need to be coplanar. And like you figured out, they can be on any oriented plane not just ones aligned to an XYZ axis.
