Rounds and fillets - Extreme conditions

Post by StarBootics » Thu Oct 03, 2019 5:03 am

Hello everyone,

In order to improve the "Fillet" feature, is providing parts examples can help developers to test the algorithms (rolling ball I guess) in extreme condition?
The main idea here is not to over flood the forum with potentially large attachments for nothing. This important understand that I'm not talking about bugs in FreeCAD specifically. It's more about the "Input Error" messages such as "Resulting shape is invalid" or "Failed to create fillet".

Best regards

The fillets algorithm is implemented in the geometric OCC kernel. A developer from OCC has described the code as very complex, so that nobody dares to touch it, although they see the need as well.
So my guess is, that it is not helpful to add further examples, especially not here.
