Create face fillets to modify and repair imported geometry. Define the size and shape of the fillet using selected faces and edges instead of a constant radius value. Use options such as Curvature continuous, Constant width, Tangent propagation, and Hold lines to define the face fillet. Modify imported geometry using a face fillet. Ensure curvature continuity with faces adjacent to the fillet. Set a constant chord length of a fillet. Define a stopping edge, or hold line, for a face fillet.

Understanding the import process into SOLIDWORKS Visualize is essential to working efficiently, and can be controlled by both the import settings and the organization of the original CAD file. Learn the two most common import settings to setup the Visualize project for different workflows; one to make the model quick and easy to work with and the other to allow for live updates and more flexibility with the model grouping. Learn how to best prepare your CAD file for the desired Visualize experience. Understand how to efficiently import models into Visualize by selecting the appropriate Import Settings. Utilize CAD Live-Update for a seamless design process.
