Hi Maria

Thanks for the responce.Yes that is the shape i was seeking.The only issue i have with it is that when i went to apply a .1mm fillet it would not accept.Could it be where it joins to the half ball shapes as there is a slight edge.Any suggestions.

Thanks again

Terry

I could only get it to work at .15mm and not at .1mm or below

Dont apply all the fillets at once. The sequence here its really important.
