Why can't I fillet the edges of this spoon?

Can someone please explain me, why can’t I fillet the edges of my spoon? It’s probably very obvious but I am just a beginner in 3D designing… Please help :frowning: :frowning:

Hello - if you are looking to fillet the top edge of the bowl, at say .02 (?) It fails to trim because the outer surface edges, at the ends, are not quite tangent to each other - hold on a bit and I’ll post a file with a fix…

At each end of the outer bowl surface:

Then make your edge surfaces, Join and fillet.

Also, please set the file tolerance to .001. The elements in this object are getting to be quite small - .02 etc - the tolerance should be at least 10 times smaller than the smallest element where possible.

This should work:
