Stitch Round

Recommended Posts

Whatever happened to the Stitch Round Tool?  I searched the manual but cannot find it.  Does it have a new name or was it replaced by another tool?  The Round between Faces does a similar operation but it does not allow for one to choose the type or size of radius as was possible with the Stitch Round?  See attachment

Hi Snow,

Thanks, yes the controlled rounding tool works for straight forward filleting (welding).  Maybe I am using it incorrectly?

I have an oval object intersecting an plane at an angle and cannot find a tool to fillet (weld) the two together.   

The first example is using the round face tool but the only variable is a single radius.  So odd shapes are created.

There are a few tools to do what you are trying to accomplish, but upon first glance I would head to the lofting tools.  That should allow you to have greater control of the blending.

Thanks Andrew for your recommendation.  I will look into the lofting process, unfortunately  it is a lot more work than selecting options in the old Stitch Round Tool. :)

Yes!!!  Thanks Johnalexander1571.  

It appears that at some point FZ combined the Trim/Split tool with the Stitch Round Tool.

The good news is that you can use the Stitch round function without having to use the Trim/Split

What a great way to start the week :)
