Fillets in Inkscape

inkscape

#1

I know this is weird coming from me but my first instructional video is not Fusion 360 based!

I am trying to get in and really learn Inkscape and I could not find a thing on fillets so I figured it out and made my own. It is only three minutes, I’m going to try to continue to keep them short. I wish the ones I find would be short. You know, get in, get out, no one gets hurt.

As always, feedback is welcome.

ROFL! :sunglasses::+1:
(Matrixed! Thanks for the addition to the arsenal!)

Thanx,
you know, I often don’t like my stuff, common around here, but I have to say I love the get in, get out, part of this and am going to try to keep future vids under 10 min.

Much appreciated by those of us with limited time. :wink:


#5

Just a minor point https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bézier_curve


#6

Lots of good information there, what particular part were you trying to point out? The extended character spelling or something else?


#7

Thank you for taking the time to make this learning video.


#8

You spelled it “bazier”.

So, love the short format and no voiceover. Very good.

Crosslinking to other discussion with an alternate method which allows for high precision:

Also of note: the current Inkscape 1.0 alpha version supposedly supports fillets, I’ve yet to try it. Hopefully it’s good and we’ll have a fast easy solution.

#@#$@# I thought I had caught all the times I had done this and fixed them. Next time I’ll copy/paste everything from somewhere with spell check as the callouts don’t have anything let alone the advanced check I normally use.

knowing more than one way to do something is always good, thanx

I appreciate the feedback, keep it coming, it will make future videos better.

I could have sworn I saw something else here but maybe I was hallucinating?

Anyway, let me add that I should have noted that shapes (rectangles and polygons) will let you round, it is shapes that you have drawn yourself where this is needed.

Thank you so much! That is a great tip! Now I don’t have to go to F360 every time I just need a fillet!

Your efforts are so appreciated. Even though I don’t use Inkscape … it’s appreciated for others.

As far as typos and spelling … sometimes walking away and coming back in with a fresh eye is all you need. My last boss would have me read any publication or web update as a double check. Just a fresh eye can help.
