Repairing Missing References for Fillets & Chamfers

New in SOLIDWORKS 2020, you can repair fillet and chamfer features that are missing edges.

Let’s, understand how this work using design of screen rim. This model is made up of three features i.e. Boss-Extrude1, 5/32 (0.15625) Diameter Hole1 & Fillet1.

Let’s move the rollback bar to see only Boss-Extrude1 feature. In first feature we created most of the geometry of rim.

 

 

Let’s split this single feature into two features. In first feature we will only add material & in second step we will create the cut. This will help us in several ways like creating different configuration, to show the process plan or to maintain the design intent.
