Magic numbers (and how can I avoid them?)

    no particular problem to realize your sketch with V4

    In V2, that example works (wrongly) every time.

    It's not every use of the Round corner tool; but frequent enough to be very frustrating. To the point I'm tending to radius corners manually. :(

    Watching you're gif, I noticed you use the round corner tool differently to me. And when I do it your way, it works perfectly!

    I've always:

    1. Clicked the corner (point) and released,
    2. Moved the mouse along one of the lines to the right place; in this case the nearest snap point.
    3. clicked a second time.

    When I do that, I get the funny number; and also the short line is left behind:

     

    However, have watched you, I just tried:

    1. clicking one line and releasing.
    2. moving the the mouse to the right place.
    3. click again.

    Still gives me funny numbers; but if I also turn the Snap off, it doesn't!

    And the short line disappears as well.

    Go figure.

    There is no need to pick the point close to where you want the fillet. Click anywhere on the first line, hover over the second line, type in radius. i.e 0.5mm Result will be shown as Diameter i.e 1mm Twice what you typed. Or Click on first line Click on second line, type in Diameter. Result will be shown as Diameter of what you typed.

    I thought I'd mentioned that I'd tried typing the value and that DSM over rid my attempt. Ah yes, there it is:

     

    • Start a Rounded Corner on the top corner of the small notch and type: 0.5(0000000). Hit enter and get: 
    • Ø1.000645mm ‽ (No matter what I type, either before hitting enter, or attempting to modify the value afterwards, it always end up the same.)

    Had that worked for me, this thread would not exist. (Nice to see that you can produce videos too!)

    I don't know the answer of why you get an anomaly.

    I've always:

    1. Clicked the corner (point) and released,
    2. Moved the mouse along one of the lines to the right place; in this case the nearest snap point.
    3. clicked a second time.

    Do not pick the corner (point) first. Pick anywhere on the line, hover over second line. Type in Radius.

    As for producing videos, I use this.

    I guess you do not read replies to other peoples replies.

    Perhaps this is more convincing -- than the sequence of screen grabs above -- that just clicking away from the corner, is not enough to fix the problem.

    There is a long delay after the magic number (0.500323) appears, before the round completes and shows the diameter as 1.000645mm. During that delay, I hit the spacebar and typed: 0.50000000, then hit enter; but gifcam does not capture the change in the edit field.

    Otherwise, nice app. (Although the editor leaves something to be desired. 98% of the above is shown as green screen, and is impossible to work out what is going on. Hence the size of the gif.

    Buk,

     

    I agree there's a problem here - and it's in V4 as well. My findings are...

    It occurs when i use snap on and when the automatic snap jumps to the 2 line intersect (and grid) position. I get the numbers you do...

    It works fine with snap on ( and perfectly with snap off/ manual box entry ) providing snap jumps not to intersect position but some place off it e.g, if using a 1mm grid coincident with the lines to be filleted/rounded , the snap jumping 1mm away from it's end.

    I will submit this as a bug...

    Also, it seems to nearly always obtain an incorrect answer when only a round dot ( at the intersection point) is highlighted at selection moment. However, this also occurs sometimes when the line is also highlighted, but never when a line is highlighted and an auto snap happens away from the line intersection point...

    For lines not colinear with the grid matrix but still parallel with it, the above still occurs. So, perhaps it['s the line intersect position and not the coincidence of grid that's the problem.

    Sadly...this comes under incosistent behavour imo.

    Whilst the 'Tool Tip' instructs a line to be selected etc, if a command can be operated another way (eg clicking a point ) then it either shouldn't work at all or work properly...

    Tim.

    I have responded to your last post in the "Thickening a complex compound curved surface. " thread, (twice), but I had included a few links to DSM documentation and the automated censor has thrown them into "Pending approval" state. The second time I removed the links in the hope of bypassing the censor,but to no avail.

    This is just a heads up to take a look there in a few weeks time to see what I said.
