Is libreoffice draw capable of rounding the corners on connectors?

I've played around some with Microsoft Visio when making automotive wiring diagrams. It appears that libreoffice will do everything I want, except for creating a radius on the connector corners.

I can change the corner style of the line to "rounded", but that merely blunts the corner. It doesn't radius it.

Is there a way of doing this? Thanks in advance.

You can use curved connectors instead of straight segmented connectors. But these curved connectors are splines and adjusting them may prove difficult. Moreover, if you chain several connectors to work around objects, the tangents at the connecting points are not co-linear (creating an angle at the connecting point).

Corner style Rounded is like the result of drawing with a technical pen.
