Hello, had a client who needed me to put a ~2mm fillet on these connecting planes.
Since theyre different angles I had a tricky time to make them meet, but with more hours than I’m willing to admit I put in to solve this “simple” task I made it.
Got me thinking that there must be a simple solution?
What would your solution be to solving this request?
Hi, I exploded the polysrf, then used surface fillet. Split the fillets near the junctions. Then used blend curve to trim the main surface. Then used Xnurbs to fill in the five sided hole.—Mark Rhino fillet.3dm (252.0 KB)
As long as your input geometry is clean, XNurbs will give you geometrically good looking and matching (g0, g1, g2 or a mix you choose) results that are often hard to match by just plain Rhino tools in a fraction of the time it would require doing things manually.
but as a designer - i appreciate solutions that handle the filleting as part of the design.
if you not draw the surfaces first, and then look for a fillet-solution - but already think about filleting, when the surfaces are constructed
If 4 surfaces meet in one corner some kind of hierarchy is pleasant for the eye.
a solution without a hierarchy, but with “ongoing edges” … for this solution i had to move the surfacest:
any reasons why you don t use the typology i posted above ?
i am not a big fan of those small triangles that form a sharp corner
what about this ?
(giving more priority to another sphere that is rolling along…less to the sphere that is doing the inward fillet )
