Variable Radius edge fillet error


New member
Hello, my friends

I need your help in identifying what is the error cause.

I think the problem is related with a "loss of tangency" in that edge but I'm not really sure about it. Could find any other explanation in google and none of the experimentas I've done gave me a clear reason for it.

Thank you

That is just a warning message to make sure you are aware the fillet was limited to the plane, and an extra face was created. If you are happy with the result, you can ignore the message.

One of the things I never liked very much in Catia is that you can't distinguish between a warning message and a real error (unless it won't let you construct what you want, obviously).

Thank you for the explanation, MrCATIA.:)
