Fillet using the Polyline option
« on: May 30, 2023, 02:44:26 PM »
Why is autocad so poor at filletting when Rhino does it so much better.
the image shows 3 very simple  shapes and under that the results of fillet w/ the polyline option (two of them went to the dark side).
I found that our waterjet runs faster if you fillet each corner (a .030" fillet does the trick) but automating this became a bit of a nightmare.

Using acad 2023 so they have never fixed it.

If you attach a drawing showing examples of before & after of the results you want you will get solutions.
Asking why a command doesn't work the same as in some other software will not.
Avoid using terms like "waterjet" that most likely wouldn't mean the same to another user.

I think this is more of a sigh of regret that Autodesk still hasn't fixed this problem.  Bryco is very experienced programmer and Autocad user, so I think it was more of a vent.

Hi bryce,

I feel your pain,
. . . those are really weird results.

it looks like a basic misunderstanding about what connects to what.
