Help Me Understand: Fillet (Asymmetric

Question asked by Daniel Blough on Dec 16, 2019

I have been trying to figure this out, and I don't know how Solidworks calculated the Ellipse when it comes to an angle like this. But I made a small drawing to show what I want, but when I create this fillet feature I cannot find any relationship between the offset values entered in the feature manager and the model geometry.

My goal is to make the edges of the fillet match up with other edge lines, so its important to know the relationship between the values and the modeled feature. When I model the ellipse on a 90 degree corner it comes out fine with offsets matching the values in the feature manager, but once the angle is changed the values no longer reflect.

It may just be a simple geometric issue I am not getting, or something Solidworks behaves when placing these features, but once I find out how to translate the values I will be set.

Here is a small example of what I want, it works on the 90 degree angle, but the 45 degree not so much.

Any help is appreciated!
