Fillet2D doesn't work everywhere in this file

The marked corner will not Fillet2D, even though other, tighter, corners will Fillet just fine at the same setting.

What's the matter here?

Explode the Spin object to disconnect the profile from the spin.

Another way (without exploding) is to use the Edit Tool. Select the polyline, then Tab to the Radius field and insert your value (0.04?) and lock the field (Ctrl+L). Mouseover the node and choose "Insert Arc" (Local Menu) when you get the four-way arrow. Your 3D object will also update to show the fillet.

Is this bug? Or user mistakes?

I don't know for sure, but I'm betting on 'as designed', since the polyline profile can be edited with the Edit Tool.

I was trying to change the Rotated object based on the Polyline.

I'm mildly annoyed that a basic function cannot be used as it was intended by design, just because it is a source object for another object that is designed so that it can be modified (it's one of the features of TurboCAD, after all).

Anyway, thanks for the help.

When I open the drawing in my 32-Bit installation, there's no "Spin" to be found. And the Polyline that's vexing Jeff is a thoroughly weird object: No matter how many times I Explode it, the SI Palette reports it as a "Polyline." But the other red object in the drawing behaves as a perfectly normal Polyline and I had no trouble filleting the indicated corner.

Hhmmm... the Polyline that caused no problems was rotated into position with Copy active, so it should have all the characteristics of the first, except that it is no longer sourcing the Revolved object.

Henry, the Spin is on the "3D" layer, which is turned off. When it's turned on, then you can see that they're associated; turns blue when selected.

Jeff,
you can also .

in quotes are found in local menu.

Not having any luck there.  Precisely where should I find these commands?

An interesting quirk.  Earlier, when I moved the Polyline, the Revolve moved with it.  Now, when I move the Polyline, the size of the Revolve changes.  In the intervening time, I had moved the Polyline's Reference Point to the end of the line used as the rotation axis, but resetting it to the default position did not change the new behavior.

What's up with that?

That did it.  I had completely forgotten that section of the manual.
