I am following a video tutorial from my university on how to create a differential housing and I have followed every step exactly, yet when I go to put a fillet on a certain feature I am getting an error about the fillet being too large for the surrounding area. Yet the instructors works fine for some reason. I have triple checked I have done everything exactly the same, but for the life of me I can't apply the fillet. I am using Solidworks 2017, although I am not sure what his version is. I have also attached my file. Looking for any advice here on what I can do to get this fillet to work.


The screenshot below is from his video. The fillet radius is 2.5mm. Fillet size is constant, symmetric and circular.
