How does a fillet work in SolidWorks?
- Fillet/Round creates a rounded internal or external face on the part. You can fillet all edges of a face, selected sets of faces, selected edges, or edge loops. You can use the Fillet PropertyManager to control options for fillet features. The PropertyManager displays the appropriate options based on the type of fillet you create.
Solidworks won’t let a fillet be made if it removes an entire face from existence, if it conflicts with existing, unrelated geometry, or if any other slight issue arises.

Why can’t I create a fillet in SolidWorks?
You get this error because you have two perpendicular lines, and the sketch fillet radius you try to apply is equal to the length of one of the lines. It means that it should delete one of the lines and this way replace two lines with a line and an arc. Sketch fillet simply cannot do that.
How do you make a fillet in SolidWorks?
To create a fillet:
- Click Fillet (Features toolbar) or Insert > Features > Fillet/Round.
- Set the PropertyManager options. For constant radius fillets only, you can use the FilletXpert to add or modify fillets and to manage fillet corners.
How do you fillet a 3D object in SolidWorks?
Click Solids > Solid Editing > Fillet edges (or type FilletEdges). Specify the Radius option. Specify the radius of the fillet arc. Specify the edges of 3D solids and press Enter.
How do you face fillet in Solidworks?
To create a face fillet between surfaces:
- Create two surfaces (the surfaces need not be adjacent).
- Click Fillet (Features toolbar) or Insert > Surface > Fillet/Round.
- In the PropertyManager, under Fillet Type, select Face fillet.
- Under Items To Fillet, set a Radius value.
What is the opposite of fillet in Solidworks?
Click Reverse Face Normal for a face set to reverse the fillet direction.
What is fillet command in Solidworks?
Fillet/Round creates a rounded internal or external face on the part. You can fillet all edges of a face, selected sets of faces, selected edges, or edge loops.
How do you insert a line break in Solidworks?
Creating Projection Split Lines
- Click Split Line. (Curves toolbar) or Insert > Curve > Split Line.
- In the PropertyManager, under Type of Split, select Projection.

How do you dimension a fillet?

Fillet Options panel Insert Dimension.
- Click an empty space in the drawing area.
What is the difference between a fillet and a chamfer?
A chamfer is the sloped or angled edges or corners of a part design. It is an antonym of the fillet. Instead of having a curved shape, a chamfer is straight and has a sharp angle. If your design requires sharp corners to be efficient for its purpose, you should choose chamfer over the different fillet mechanics.
How do you cook a full round fillet?
Click 3D Model tab Modify panel Fillet Full Round Fillet. To Create Full Round Fillets
- Include Tangent Faces. Select to allow the fillet to continue over tangent, adjacent faces automatically.
- Preserve All Features. When selected, checks all features that intersect with the fillet.
- Optimize for Single Selection.
How do you reverse a fillet in Solidworks?
You can reverse the orientation of the fillet on one or more edges that intersect the vertex. Click the multi-edge control point to select which edges you want to reverse the orientation for. Sets the radius for one fillet direction. Sets the radius for the other fillet direction.
