Edge routing / filleting - custom profile?

Postby Brutha » Tue Jan 08, 2019 12:42 pm

Hi All,

Quick question, does anyone know of any functionality where I can give a custom profile for a fillet? For example, beading as shown below, from the Wikipedia page here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Router_(woodworking)

It was discussed before here https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... ing#p53954 - wondered if anyone had found / done something since then?

Cheers

Nothing has been done to this since 2014. You still have to DIY, by using pockets or subtractive sweeps

You can do something like this:

1. Open PartDesign WB
2. Create new Body
3. Create sketch and make a pad out of it. It will be eg. cabinet door.

4. Make another sketch with profile you want to make on door. Sketch plane is suppose to be perpendicular to plane you created pad sketch in step 3.
It should have geometry of your milling tool. Position sketch like you would position router bit.

6. Now, in "Corner transition" select right corner, then press button "Add edge" and select edge on Pad where you placed your profile sketch. You will get something like this:

Then press "Add edge" and select next edge on pad. Repeat operation for all remaining edges.


7. You will get something like this:
