Is there a maximum radius for a welded corner? If there is, what is it? I am using SW2018. I am trying to get a .250inch radius corner on a part. It will work with a radius of .150 inch but fails with a larger radius.
There may be something in the geometry that prevents the 1/4" radius. Can you post the Part here?
It is dependent on the material thickness. Here's a welded corner with a .625 radius:
But the material is .375 thick:
The maximum radius you can have is the radius of the circle tangent to both outside faces at the corner:
SOLIDWORKS won't trim back material to get a larger radius.
Also, SOLIDWORKS extends the inner faces in a straight line, so if your desired radius crosses the point of intersection of the inside faces, it won't allow the corner:
But if you are just outside the intersection, it will allow it, even though the geometry is unrealistic:
Material is .05 inch
Your radius for the welded corner must be less than 0.1707:
The welded corner will not have a radius on the inside surface (as shown in your original image), only the outside:
It actually came in with a right angle inside the welded corner. I added a fillet.
