3D Chamfer and Fillet?

Question

Is it possible soon to have VW handle chamfers and fillets on multiple and intersecting edges/corners on mechanical models soon please. Having used MiniCAD and VW for 6 years now, this is still one of the most frustrating aspects of this program in simulating reasonably realistic mechanical designs which aren't architectural. I'm trying to be patient. Perhaps it will be part of the mechanical design product? G4/256, VW-A 9.01

I'm not in mechanical engineering but I still find a need for this feature. If I want the edges of a cube to be blended (round) I would have to do some solid operations which I feel could be easier to do with a 3D fillet command.

I agree - although it would need to be done carefully as I've found sometimes 3D fillets can do unexpected things on complex shapes.
