Question:

When performing Boolean operations, is there a way to stop fillets projecting through objects?

Applies to:

  • Implicit Modeling

Answer:

With implicit models, the geometry is a Field as opposed to discrete edges and faces. The benefit of this is that geometry never fails and allows us to create complex structures and speeds up operations like fillets between thousands of intersections at once. However, the Boolean operations will produce fillets anywhere implicit objects intersect, which can yield unexpected results. For this reason, it's a very common workflow to perform a cleanup step at the end of a series of Booleans. While this seems like many steps, you'll also find this technique can be very robust and repeatable.
