Bezier Fillet

Question

I know that the problems with the 3D fillet tool have been mentioned before, but how about adding a bezier fillet edge tool. Rather than just having an arc fillet I would love to be able to specify two dimensions (like in the 2D chamfer tool) and have VW clip a bezier curve out of the edges of solids.

I was just trying to model a table and I realized what I REALLY want: a router tool. A tool that would work like an actual router. You could draw any profile you want and VW would be able to subtract that shape from the edge of the object. You can essentially do this now (with a ton more steps) with an extrude-along-path, and add solids, bla, bla, bla, but I think this tool would be a time-saver and allow you to "router" the edges of more complex shapes.

P.S. I agree - it would be great if the Fillet Edge tool worked as it is!

Mark,

if, when the Fillet/Chamfer Tool works as it should with continuity, your "Router" should work nicely as a part of the bezier addition you requested.
