 +====== Existing small radius ======
 +> **Summary:​** //When working with multiple fillet radii, we start with the largest values first and progress in order to the smallest radius, to avoid running a fillet off the edge of a surface it is following. This tutorial shows a technique to use when an existing smaller fillet is complicating things.//

 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBigStart.png}} | The existing fillet is 3mm.  We will add a 4mm filet around the top edge. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig01.png}} | Run FilletEdge with 4mm.  It will do what it can and fail. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig02.png}} | Extract the two 4mm surfaces, and the 3mm surface. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig03.png}} | Split the red surface by isocurve where it intersects the edge of the 4mm filet surface. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig04.png}} | Delete the top piece of the 3mm surface. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig05.png}} | Untrim the fillet surfaces. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBig06.png}} | Use FilletSrf to make the curved transition surface. |
 +
 +\\
 +
 +| {{:​legacy:​en:​SmallToBigEnd.png}} | Join all the surfaces to the polysurface,​ and cap to replace the missing top surface. |
