    Hello,

    Id like to ask for an advice on how to fillet root of propeller blade to the hub. Ive already tried "fillet edge" and "variable fillet radius" but still doesnt work.

    It is possible that, if the hub is a closed surface, the program can not create the joining surface. Try a hub formed by several pieces, as many pieces as blades has the propeller.

    TANSL, have you used Rhino? Rhino can create a fillet between a closed surface and another surface.

    @DCockey, I'm glad to know, I'll try. Yes, I use Rhino but I thought, without checking, that this option was not possible.
    Sometimes it has happened to me that an option is not possible with an object but it is possible when the object is broken into its parts.
    What we do know at this moment is that what @malit92 wants to do, with Rhino, is not possible or at least it is not possible in the way he wants to do it. Let's not stop exploring, therefore, any suggestion.
