Creating a Radius or Fillet

In this lesson, you will learn how to use two common features often associated with 3D printed designs. Both features create rounded corners. In the video, the author designs a fillet from scratch, which is perfectly fine.

There is also a “MetaFillet” shape already in Tinkercad that can be used, but for some strange reason, they hide it pretty well. It is located on page 12 of the Shape Generators (all).

After watching the video, open your project in Tinkercad and please spend a few minutes adjusting the radius option and inserting fillets before moving on to the next lesson.

Please watch the video within the course. (Do not open in YouTube unless you are revisiting this lesson and need to jump to a certain point in the video.) Press “F” to watch the video full screen.
