Coping the edge of a rectangle
« on: January 10, 2017, 03:41:32 PM »
Basic Cad Gurus;

I have written a macro that creates a raised panel for a kitchen cabinet door using this part of code.


      >FilletEdge
      {
         <pointXYZ [X1 +( Width/2)],[Y1 + ((Height-Top)-.75)],[-.125]
         <Radius [.25],[.25]
         <NFace 4
      }         

My question is , is there a comparable function to create a cove edge instead of a round over?
Another question is what does <NFace 4 do.

Thanks Jim

<NFace is how many facets on the 'rounded' edge. It's the same as the 'Number of Facets' field in the Fillet Edge dialog box.

No, there's no built-in function to create a concave fillet. The best you can do is extrude a cutting solid, and solid-subtract it away from the door.

Thanks DT;

I wonder if a concave fillet could go on a wish list. It sure would be easier.
