Create a fillet between two segments

In the Modify Features pane, Fillet Fillet creates a circular arc that is tangent between two segments and trims or extends the two connecting segments. You can drag and size the radius dynamically or type a fixed radial distance.

For example, you can click two straight street curb lines and create a rounded concave curb between them. The original curb lines can be connected or disconnected.

Creating a fillet does not require a selection. Clicking the segments with the pointer automatically selects them. When you drag and size a radius dynamically, a preview of your edits appears on the map.

  1. On the Edit tab in the Features group, click Modify Modify Features.

    The Modify Features pane appears.

  2. Expand Reshape and click Fillet Fillet.

    The tool opens in the pane.

  3. To apply a fixed radius, check the Fixed Radius check box and type the the radial distance.
  4. Click one of the two existing lines between which you want to create the fillet.
  5. Click the other line to which you want to connect with the tangent arc.

    If a fixed radius isn't set, the fillet curve changes as you drag the pointer along the other line.

  6. Click the map again to finish your edits.
