In the solid modeler I used to use, there was a useful tool: Elliptical fillets. Is there a way to do that in Rhino?
No. You need to model those manually.
Modeling an ellipse manually will be simple on linear will be simple. The object I have in mind isis very curvy and has variable widths. I’ll have to experiment a bit.
Thank you for your help.
Do you need an exact ellipse?
Hello - If the fillets happen to be 90 degrees or less, (i.e. 3 control points across, normally) you can select the middle row and monkey with the control point weight (
Weight command). What hppens where they collide is another matter…
In Rhino, elliptical fillets with/without lead will be all manual work.
An alternative could be to find a colleague with SolidWorks where with the Asymmetric Fillet elliptical fillets are a piece of cake. You can even obtain G2 continuity (but then it’s no longer a true elliptical quadrant).
