Fillets, fillets, fillets???

We need to add extensive amounts of filleting to our finished sand casted part designs.  The process is very time consuming and tedious.  Not to mention if

we go back and make changes (redesigns never happen right???), the fillets do not rebuild smoothly.  Oftentimes it is easier (and quicker) to delete most of the fillets and recreate them instead of trying to fix and rebuild them.  Does anybody have advice and suggestions to increase the speed and ease of adding fillets to casted part designs.  Sometimes the time spent on filleting is 15-30% of the design time for most of our cast part designs. (Almost as bad as a sharp stick in the eye!)
