 +====== Advanced Filleting ======
 +> **Summary:​** //There are situations where the automatic filleting tools in Rhino may fail. This page contains tutorials that show how to manually get the desired results.//
 +
 +**Contact:​** [[jb@mcneel.com|John Brock]] or [[pascal@mcneel.com|Pascal Golay]]
 +
 +======The two primary commands for filleting surfaces in Rhino are:======
 +
 +====FilletEdge:​====
 +  * Creates a tangent surface between multiple polysurface edges (joined) with optional varying radius values, trims the original faces, and joins the resulting surfaces together.
 +  * Is not limited to just two surfaces
 +  * Can fill in corners between adjacent fillets
 +  * Is limited to exactly three surfaces meeting at a point
 +  * The radiuses used can not be so large that they overlap each other and completely consume any surface they are following.
 +
 +====FilletSrf:​====
 +  * Creates a tangent surface between two surface edges (joined or not) with a constant radius, and optionally trims and/or extends the original surfaces.
 +  * Works on exactly two surfaces at a time
 +  * Does not fill in corners between adjacent fillets
 +
 +======What if they don’t work?======
