Fillet "Hidden" Edges

    I am trying to fillet some edges that are hidden in a bottle and I can't select them even in wireframe view, nor does the section view work while having the fillet tool active, thinking I might be able to select them in a section view. Surely there must be some way to select an edge that appears to be hidden in Alibre? In TurboCAD one just presses the page down key on the keyboard to move down to hidden edges. In SW I believe you can us the section tool to open up models to see and work inside - might not even need to do that, as I don't quite recall.

    I found "precise section". Perhaps that what is needed. If there are other options please let me know.

    You can right click over the line and use the "Advanced Selector..." to pick things behind.
    Change the selection filter to "Select Edges" to narrow down what you want to select.

    I've done this kind of work using Alibre's Section tool as well
