DriveWorks Pro 15: Fillet [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Fillet

ParameterTypeDescription
DefaultRadiusDistanceSet the radius of the fillet.
KeepFeaturesTrue/FalseSet the fillet to keep features otherwise removed by it's the creation.
PropagateToTangentFacesTrue/FalseSet the fillet to propagate to tangent edges and faces.
RoundCornersTrue/FalseSet the fillet to eliminate the sharp juncture where fillet edges meet with a smooth transition.
OverflowType

One of the following values:

Default

KeepEdge

KeepSurface

Set OverflowType as Default to allow SOLIDWORKS to choose from one of the following options.

Set OverflowType as KeepEdge to create a fillet that maintains the integrity of any edges it intersects.

Set OverflowType as KeepSurface to create a smooth fillet that modifies intersecting edges.

CrossSectionProfile

One of the following values:

Circular

ConicRho

ConicRadius

Set profile as circular to create a fillet with a constant radius.

Set profile as ConicRho to create a fillet with a shoulder defined by ratio Rho. 0.05 < Rho. 0.95.

Set profile as ConicRho to create a fillet with a shoulder defined by the radius at the shoulder point.

Conic Rho/RadiusDistanceIf CrossSectionProfile is set to ConicRho or ConicRadius, Conic Rho/Radius defines that value.
CurvatureContinuousTrue/FalseIf True, a face fillet will be a smooth transition between the faces, eliminating any edges. CurvatureContinuous overrides CrossSectionProfile.
