Corner Fillet Options for Consumer Product

Question asked by Jason Corl on Feb 19, 2018

Looking for some opinions on modeling corners with setback type features for an apple-esque product. The product will have a polished surface so I want to get the corners "right". Think Macbook charger corners. I'm trying to break away from the traditional fillet 1 + fillet 2 = done and looking at curvature etc. which is new for me. Anyone have suggestions on methods to try. Curvature Continuous etc.

 

I've attached a model with a few options as described below.

  • Red body (Continuous Curvature Fillets)

1. setback/delete/fill

2. Flat Trim and fill

  • Blue body (Circular Fillets)

3. Flat Trim and fill

4. Setback/delete/fill

 

Any thoughts on what will look and feel the best? One of these options or something different? I've included 2 other bodies in there green and yellow if anyone has any suggestions and can show by example :-). Model is 2017 but I can open 2018. Thanks guys!
