When adding a fillet to an edge it is convex, what happens if you want a concave fillet?
Are you looking for a concave fillet on an outer edge, or a concave fillet on an inner edge? Some people distinguish between fillets (concave) and rounds (convex). SolidWorks does not. In fact, you can have a single fillet feature that includes both.
But, yeah, if you're looking for a concave fillet on an outer edge, that's not a fillet. Like J. Mather says, it's a sweep.
I have asked this question as I notice on the latest version of Inventor that the option when using the fillet command to have either a convex or concave fillet, I hope someone from SolidWorks looks to implement this feature in a future release.
Maybe you could explain what you mean? It could be that the Inventor feature can't tell automatically if the fillet is supposed to be concave or convex, and that it can't do both in the same feature. Please show an example.
Below you can see SW does concave and convex fillets all in one feature. There is no setting. Maybe you can get someone from Autodesk to implement this feature.

You can even get a single fillet to change from concave to convex. Can Inventor do this?

Inventor will create identical fillet as shown in your image in one Fillet Feature.
LOL. Its like watching a tennis match!
This was the option I was talking about (taken from the Inventor what's new)
what are we talking about welds or rounding edges?
