Variable fillet is not running where a continuous fillet is

Hi everybody,

 

I've seen it more than one or two times an I don't understand what the reason can be (if it's not just a bug).

 

Imagine an edge with a regular 4mm fillet running along it with no trouble. Then we try to run the same 4mm fillet by the variable fillet option assigning 4mm to all points and the fillet is not working (usually due to the "geometry condition")

 

What is the difference between one and another way? What am I missing here?

 

Sometimes I need to do it with the variable option in order to assign a common value and then change one or two points and this issue is very frustrating when it happens so I can see how the regular fillet works but the variable one it doesn't.

 

You can find the screenshots sample file attached.

 

1. With the normal fillet option:

2. With the variable fillet option

Thank you very much!!
