    I am trying to create a solid with rounded edges. I thought it would be possible to use the fillet command, but I am not seeing how. When I create an outline, I cannot convert that shape in a surface and then extrude the surface into a solid as I would have hoped.
    How can I achieve this?

    Hi Floriaan,

    Sander is correct: this is not possible to do in WYSIWYG, so you will have to use SketchUp or some other 3D modelling or CAD application (AutoCAD, 3DS MAX, etc.) to create the object you require and then import it into WYSIWYG.


    Cheers,

    Dany

    haha, I know Floriaan for 20 years now, but this is the first time that I am correct on something WYG related!
    thanks Dany
