How to fillet this solid?

Hi,
I used Clayoo to make this very simple model and then converted it into Rhino’s native surface. Using the Rhino, I cut off a part from the edge area of the cube. Now, I wanna fillet it. I used filletsrf command to fillet but even manual trimming fails. Please guide me.
Thanks.

Hi, the cutting surface was wrongly constructed. Check the solution.

How did you solve it? Can you please explain it more?

Sure,

  1. In top view design a curve you like for cutting.

  2. Extrude said curve

  3. trim

4: join all surf

Dont try to make a surface that will fit a complex edge. Make a simple surface - cut and let the software do the calculating.

Your model has serious continuity problems that should have caused the fillet to fail. Instead you get you get a broken fillet. This is a fairly simple form that would be better handled completely with nurbs.
