Alias: F


Sets a radius value for fillet between two entities.

The entities could be:

  • Lines, including parallel lines
  • All vertices of a single 2D polyline; two polylines cannot be filleted
  • Rays, including parallel rays
  • Infinite lines, including parallel infinite lines
  • Arcs
Note: Press and hold the Shift key when select the second entity to create a corner (radius = 0). The selected entities are extended or trimmed at the intersection point. The selected part of the entities is kept.
Note: If the second entity is parallel to the first entity the entities are connected by a semicircle. If the parallel entities are not of equal length, then the second entity is extended or trimmed when Trim Mode = Trim.
