Arch-Design Mat and Round corners setting
show user profile  Dmaxer
Ive started making name plate's for the my battersea project . as you can see the letters look way to sharp so Im trying to use the Round corners Fx in the Arch-Design Mat.

Thing is no matter what I set the fillet radius too it gives no effect at all . Anyone here have any idea's why this would be the case ?

Or is there any other way I could get the same fx without having to chamfer all the edges as this would probably just make a mess .

I have this problem too sometimes. I think it's a scale issue.

I get right up close to one bit, start with tiny values and increase it until the effect is visible, then fine tune it.

Good luck!

You're welcome. I often find the ram player is valuable at times like this, as being to compare two renders is a must for figuring out if your changes have had any effect.

yah the value for this is based on scale units, so if your not getting an effect, its probably because your scale is off.
