I want to know how to put a fillet on the 2 edges of a cylinder?? Why doesn’t sketch up have a fillet and chamfer icon. It would be a lot easier.
By chance, I did a tutorial on this very subject a while back:
man that’s a lot of extra work. In catia and ug they have the icons for fillets and chamfers. It seems to me that sketch up has you do a lot of extra work to do a simple function. I’m going to find another design process.
You can install Fredo’s excellent Roundcorner to give you tools to create chamfers and fillets: http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=20485
I used this method, however, what I created is a shallow cylinder, (the inside of the cylinder is empty). What did I do wrong?
Could you post a screen shot? Very likely it is a case of working with too small geometry but seeing it would help.
Keep in mind, though, SketchUp is a surface modeler so there never is anything inside. But if you get a hole to the inside, that’s different.
Also, make sure that the center of the circle used for the lathing operation is aligned with the axis of the object.
