summary Fillets can be understood as connecting surfaces, created by a sphere - of constant or variable diameter - that moves tangent to the components. These complex forms have been mainly developed through CAD-CAM processes but, in order to understand them thoroughly and so use them in all their potential, some basic morphological concepts are necessary. They will be explained in distinctive spatial situations. In relation to the language of design products, these surfaces are fundamental in the subtle operation of curve forms. They have an effect on the understanding of geometric and perceptual continuity between different spatial surfaces. They let us identify the original components but they also conceal them in a new form that includes them. A tension arises, a game of seduction where forms are covered and revealed to the comprehension of man.
