Fillet - Distance from Edge?

Hi guys. I'm fairly new to SolidWorks but I've been using Rhino for a while now. I'm trying to figure out if SolidWorks has a feature that lets me create a fillet based on the distance from the filleted edge rather than the radius of the fillet.

 

I have two surfaces meeting at a corner and the angle of this corner varies. I want the filleted rail to be a consistent distance from the corner rather than a consistent radius, which would vary in distance from the corner. Does that make sense? Rhino has a command for this (DistFromEdge): FilletEdge | Rhino 3-D modeling

 

Thanks,

Peter
