Q - question

Extended FILLET functionality.

A - answer In the civil engineering jobs, you often need more advanced methods for filleting non-parallel lines than that offered by the standard FILLET command.

If you want to e.g. specify the filleting parameter by the distance between the arc apex and the intersection of the lines, or by the center angle (sector) of the arc, or by the length of the arc or its chord, you can use the construction command CurveBetweenTwoLines (resp. the ribbon Home > Draw > Curves > Create Curves Between Two Lines) available in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

This command offers the following options in Release 2011: Tangent/External/Degree/Chord/Length/Mid-ordinate/miN-dist/Radius.
