Round an angled edge

Round an angled edge

Postby davesexcel » Tue Oct 17, 2017 4:33 pm

I have not been able to figure out how to round an angled edge, and hope somebody has an idea.
I use a half inch radius.

For the straight angle, I draw a 1/2" line down the middle, then add a circle, then push the edge.

I can draw the line for the angled board, but the circle gets all funky. The second image shows the way the curve should be for the angled board.

Thanks.

PushPull the face then intersect or boolean. Or use Fredo's RoundCorner extension

I'm not sure what you mean by "all funky"?

You have drawn the circle perpendicular to the edge, which is a correct step that many novices don't get right. I noticed that the board is a Group and that the circle is not in that Group. To get interactions between the board and circle you will need to get them in the same context. The easiest way is to copy the circle, open the Group for edit, and then Paste in Place.

When you pushpull it along the angled edge (or better, use the follow-me tool) you will get extra bits hanging off both ends because the ends are askew to the circle. The pushpull or follow-me will not have generated the edges where the contours of the circle pierce the ends of the board, so you need to add them. In this simple case you can draw them using the line tool (pencil) because there aren't many. Alternatively, you can use Intersect Faces With... to generate them automatically. Then you need to use the erase tool to clean up the extra. Careful use of the selection boxes can speed this step, but erasing one-by-one will also work.

Is there some reason this is in the Developer forum?
