Why cant i get filets on a curved shape?

By maarten weidema on 15 Sep 14:55 1 answer 0 comments

Now and then, i have troubles putting a filet on a curved part.
First i thought it was because not all shapes where tangent, but even then that wont solve my problem.. Some help would be apreciated.

    You have several surfaces that are not tangent with each other. If you right click on the edge you want to fillet and click "select tangency", you will pick up most of what you want fillited. You will still see several edges that are showing yellow. These edges are ones that you need to individually select to complete your fillet.
