How to fillet this part?

GDay All,

 

I have a part that I want to fillet but only the edges that are highlighted. Please see the attached photo.

 

I have tried using sweep but it insists on returning similar results to the fillet command in that it wants to fillet the entire edge which is not what I want.

 

Anyone have a simple solution?

Regards
Andy M

Andy, with sweep it's posible but make sure that you select the sweep and not the edge.

An other option is to use the fillet command and use 'Variable radius', place points were you want to start the fillet and change the Radius to zero. See attachment for an example.

Thanks Rob. I now see where I was going wrong when using sweep.

 

I have to chalk it up to another 'grey' moment ... lol
