mitch1_02.jpg Use ExtractSrf and Join to separate the top and the base. Use FilletEdge (R=10) to fillet all of the desired edges. Then Explode everything.


mitch1_03.jpg Use FilletSrf (R=5, Extend=Yes, Trim=Yes) to fillet the vertical side surfaces of the top and base (Black).


mitch1_04.jpg Use FilletSrf (R=10) and fillet the 5mm surfaces made in the previous step.
