In this lesson, we are going to explore the Fillet command. Fillet allows us to create rounded corners. On my screen, I have some abstract geometry. We are going to use these lines to explore the workflow behind Fillet. Now Fillet is a modification tool. So we can find it right here in the Modify panel of the Ribbon.
