Dear Fredo,

This is how it's done in Inventor

and variable

Apparently Inventor does just fillet, whether fix or variable offset. I have not seen the 3-direction rounding of corners. And the profile seems to be always an arc of circle.

Actually, it is Sketchup that automatically generate the faces. RoundCorner algorithm does not 'see' them.
I need to see if I can do something, but no guarantee!

It would be great if the round corner could be turned off and just turn it on before render.

Fredo,

This gives more details on the fillet and chamfer options for Inventor

Dear Fredo,

I forgot to say that I think you are absolutely brilliant! Thank you for all your hard work in not only writing these scripts, but documenting them so well. You really are a very generous chap.

Kind regards,
Bob

Thanks. Interesting, but my first reaction would be that I understand why some of you prefer Sketchup, which is so much natural to use for this type of shapes (except maybe for the variable radius filleting).

For the mechanically minded, RoundCorner is just perfect for all those radiussed and chamfered features. Setting the offset equal to the radius on the end of a pin will round the end of the pin beautifully.

Just loaded this plugin for the first time. I drew a circle and, using the default parameters, clicked to proceed and got this :o

Not sure what it is, but it sure neat ;) Black hole generator maybe. :idea:

Now on to more serious testing. 8-)

you have to change the default parameter (1000mm) to a smaller value or draw a bigger circle.

Yes, I knew that but just wanted to see what would happen with the randomly sized circle I drew. :D

Still a fascinating result!

Actually creating black holes and big bang effects was the primary goal of the plugin. It is just a side effect that it sometimes round edges and corners, but promised, I'll fix this inconvenience:D :D

Another outstanding plugin, thank you. I was especially amazed at your brilliant and innovative use of openGL for the toolbar - it opens another world of possibilities I had never considered... who needs WebDialogs? :lol:

This is true - I can think of a number of plugins that could do with OpenGL type UI instead of webdialogs. I hope I can master it for Selection Toys 2.0

And here we get a glimpse of another side of Mr. Fredo6, in case any of you thought he was just a tarball of code.

A salute to you Fredo6.

fredo, RoundCorner can be applied in the future to generate edges, with shape conical?

as in the picture, but for more complex forms

Unfortunately, the script is not able to manage rounding with variable radius. It would be a different approach, both for the GUI and for the calculation (and a headache for programming in the general case).

Fredo, You did something in this script that I don't think has been accomplished before. Namely, you allow the user to exit and switch tools in the middle of a calculation. This is also the only tool that allows me to switch to another window while it processes without the screen turning white and going to into the spinning circle icon. Is this something other coders could implement, or is it something specific you did within your LibFredo plugin????

This is actually tricky but with no magic. I can be done by everyone. I just cut the calculation into slices and give back control to GUI from time to time.
For Ruby programmers: Threads do not work well in SU7, because SU deactivates the main GUI thread for speed, and anyway, this method leads to twice the time when not interrupted. So I default back to the old good UI.start_timer.

How long do you set the timer's timeout to?

Currently 1 second, to give some quick feedback when the user press Escape or click in the viewport.
