Pls simplify Fillet curves command


#1

As you see here in v5 it’s still not working when too many points…



Filleting more than one corner at a time
#2

Yes, this is a classic, the problem is not too many points, but polycurves that have segments too short at the joints to allow the fillet of a given radius. FilletCorners does not know how to jump to the next segment and ignore the segment(s) that will get removed anyway - but the Fillet command does apparently, so this should be fixable…

One workaround is to offset the curve to one side by the fillet radius - using Corner=Round, then re-offset the offset curve back. That should effectively fillet all inside and outside sharp corners…

This is very smart!!! Thanks @Helvetosaur


#4

Finished it here. Actually I’m working out a fashion label and this flakon (don’t know if we finally make it) should balance on one point. Have a friend in Vienna who is a researcher who can calculate it. Fingers crossed! Thanks again Mitch!
