Can we use 3D Reshape tool to reshape a Fillet/Chamfer/Shell solid objects

Recommended Posts


-Am drawing an Extruded Rectangle.

-using Fillet Edge tool am selecting a face of Extruded Rectangle and filleting it.

-Obviously the Object is now converted to a Fillet Object.

-Now can i use 3D Reshape tool to reshape it? as of now i was not able to use it , but can reshape the Width ,Depth and Height of the Fillet object through OIP.

No, unfortunately, though it's been wishlisted.

You would have to undo the fillet via "Ungroup", then edit the Extruded Rectangle with normal tools, then re-"Fillet Edge". The OIP "reshape" is actually making asymmetrical scale changes, which affect the fillet dimensions as well.

Quickest way, I find, to chamfer a 3D is to construct an overlapping polygon, extrude it then subtract Solids in the Model menu.
