Round/Fillet option at render
« on: January 08, 2013, 08:31:16 am »
This adds so much realism and would save a lot of time having to put rounds on manually in CAD software. Modo already has this option.

Please, please,  please include this soon.  :)

Never seen it work, never done this ... but I love it already  ;D

I hate having 59 edges selected (in Inventor) to give them a fillet and then for one of the last edges, you click in the wrong place which cancels your selection  >:( >:( >:(

Then Inventor is really quirky! Never had this happening in SolidWorks.  8)

Solid Edge is even better than SolidWorks at fillets if you ask me. A single edge creating a failure doesn't wreck the entire fillet feature like it does in SW. I've never used Inventor or Pro/E.

Only tangentially related to the post, but I've started creating SW configurations, one with all fillets for toolmaking and KS rendering, and one with all (in my case, it depends on the product) fillets < .062 suppressed for drawings to clean up the line count.  But the suppressed fillet config also works well with KS if you use the corner rounding option.
