Yeah, lousy name, but let me explain.
We often have to add fillets to features that are coplanar. This creates an embossment. The problem is that almost always the fillet we need is greater than the height of the embossment. So we have to do a combination of offsetting and using the pipe command a couple times to get the results we need. Here are some dimensions that are typical:
It would be very useful to have a command that allows the user to pick the top surface, pick the base surface, then enter the fillet size. Then the fillets would be added based off of this input.
I’m going to attempt this in Python, but I’m probably going to get stuck trimming it and making it look decent.
I will attach a simple file illustrating this idea.
