hi is there a plugin or technique with lightwave 8.0 for making a fillet or blend beween 2 parts of an object?

i've been looking at how powershape from delcam creates them today and this also works for nurbs in xsi i think...

as an example say a teapot spout and where it connects to the teapot "pot" you'd make a blended or filleted transition where you'd be able to "dial up" the size of the bend, how many steps and if it were convex or concave..

obvoiusly you can create a spout and grow it out from the side via bevels/smooth shift but i'm thinking of a more "after the fact" way where you may just have to separate objects and where they interect you could build a blended transition..

hope i've explained it okay...

Well you can use a Combo of Connect/Bridge and Rounder to get a fillet..
