There is an option in Solidworks called “full round fillet” and it fillets a nice round shape and the edge. In the following polysurface I want to do the same in Rhino. Please guide me.

The problem is that for a full round fillet (0.25mm), the holes are too close together vertically - less than 0.5mm - so the fillets will overlap. Rhino will not do a good job on this as it does not know how to trim the neighboring fillets to each other at the points that overlap. If you use a smaller value such as 0.15, it works OK to select with a window and apply fillets, but they will not be “full round”…
you have an option to use BlendSrf. for this delete the inner boundaries again and click them all through in repeat mode meaning with * infront of BlendSrf or with the command repeat. i made a few of those with tangency. it involves some manual work because all holes seem a little different, otherwise a polar array with one completed row or at least rotate with option copy could´ve finished it fast.

That will, of course, change the hole inner diameter… --Mitch
well as you discovered yourself, a full round fillet creates a lot of mess and naked edges and since i could not find any reference for this to be a constraint blend surface is his option. another option would be of course to use some SubD technique.
A good example where the V6 FaceEdges selection is really useful, can do all fillets/Chamfers in 3 Clicks.
Can you please explain a bit?
I don’t understand what you mean by “FaceEdges selection”.
In V6 , when you run Fillet/ Chamfer/Blend egde , in command bar you have an option to select each borders of a face “FaceEdges” , just click on that , then select faces you want.
Thank you. very helpful.
