Hi Ryan

It seems the fillet fails because of some intersections in your model. There are 3 sided surfaces which can be replaced with 4 sided surfaces to achieve the fillet.

I rebuilt the shoulder of the ring so the surfaces all have 4 sides along with sweeping the bottom of the shank to remove the 3 sided surface from there.

Hope that helps

hi, thanks so much for the help! just wondering, how did you rebuild the shoulder of the ring so nicely? also, I can’t open the file because it was made in rhino8 and i only have version 7.

Here’s a little breakdown of how it could be done and the file in v7.
