There are four types of fillets in Solidworks:
In this tutorial , we will discuss the different steps you need to take when you use the variable radius fillet.
Step 1: Select a perimeter path.
Step 2: Set a fillet radius on one of the control points
Step 3: Set a fillet radius on another of the control points
Step 4: Either click on the starting point or double-click on it
