I wanted to have some fun on a vacation day and mention a staple of AutoCAD use which is the FILLET command. I also wanted an excuse to draw a salmon in AutoCAD.
I have heard people actually pronounce FILLET the same as FILET but they are differently pronounced and different meanings. The AutoCAD FILLET command is immensely helpful for adding a user defined radius between two lines.
Command FILLET “Select first object or [Undo/Polyline/Radius/Trim/Multiple]”.
You can also set the radius to 0 (default) and join two lines and trim them quickly. In AutoCAD you can fillet arcs, circles, elipses, elliptical arcs, lines, polylines, rays, splines, and xlines. You can also fillet 3D solids and surfaces.
Remember it is the FILLET (fill’it) Not the Salmon Filet (fill’ay).
Yes I did draw the northwestern Native American styled salmon carved art in AutoCAD. It was a bunch of fun to come up with in only a few minutes. Below is a link to a DWF file of the drawing.
