Rounding corners

bjenkins3891
How do I round a corner of two lines at a point to create a radius. I am using version 2.1.3 on Windows. I had seen a YouTube video that showed using a "Rounding" tool under the "Modify" menu, but I don't see it on my version.

Welcome!

The tool was renamed a while ago, thus look for the Fillet tool in the Modify menu.
Please note the radius field appearing somewhere on the top tool bars, when you select this tool.
There you enter the corner radius.

Thanks Armin!  I had noticed the Fillet tool and did try it out but was using it incorrectly. But, I am all set now. Do you happen to know if it is possible to add a thread onto a part? And, if so, how? Super beginner user here, obviously.

You're welcome!

There is no special tool to draw a thread. You have to do it manually, using Offset, Parallel Line, Arc, Bevel or whatever is needed to draw and trim a standardized thread.
