# Chamfer and Small Radius Fillet On Walls

## Question

First - I know you can fillet a wall - but the minimum fillet is the thickness of the wall - or thereabouts. It would be really great if you could fillet a corner at a small radius. Apparently this has come up here several times and has been a big reason that nobody will adopt the use of the wall tool.

Also, the chamfer tool should work with the wall tool.

Thanks

Could you post an example of the geometry you're trying to achieve via these means please? it can simply be composed of solids/polygons, or simply a picture from a real-world condition where it already exists.

If I understand the staff correctly, it is something like the attached.

Thanks!

I've run into several situations where the thickness of a wall impedes joining. Most common is similar to a chamfer:

2 thick walls meet at an acute angle like Tom shows. But they are cut, not at half the joining angle. Usually the cut is 90deg to one of the walls.

My solution is to create a 3rd, very thin (1/2") and short wall where I want the cut to happen. The thick walls then join with the 3rd wall. It doesn't always work, and I rarely use wall components.

Some detailed control over wall joins would really help.

Let's face it the 3D Fillet/Chamfer tool needs to be brought into the 21st century, it is way out of date.

What else specifically would you want to see?

Interactivity.

Different profiles in the fillet/chamfer

non destructive fillet/chamfering (it shouldn't turn into a fillet/chamfer and then need to be ungrouped.

Yes to all of these. Also the ability to add additional radius points or manually position them in a tapered fillet/chamfer.

Plus the 2d/3d tools should be merged.
