  1. On the Draw toolbar, click Chamfer .

  2. On the ribbon, type a distance value in the Setback A box. The first linear element will be set back this distance from the corner.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To define the setback distance for the second linear element, type a value in the Setback B box on the ribbon.

    • To define the chamfer angle, type a value in the Angle box on the ribbon.

  4. Click the linear element to which you want to apply the Setback A value.

  5. Click the linear element to which you want to apply the Setback B value or the chamfer angle value.

    The lines that you select do not need to intersect, but they cannot be parallel.

  6. Click to draw the chamfer.

  • You can draw a chamfer only between linear elements.

  • When two lines intersect, you can draw a chamfer simply by clicking the corner and then moving the pointer in the distance that you want. A final click on the drawing sheet places the chamfer.

  • You can draw a chamfer with equal chamfer angles. Click the two linear elements you want to use. When the chamfer is displayed dynamically, move the pointer until the setback distance you want to use is displayed, and then click.

  • You can switch the setback values for the linear elements. After you click the linear elements you want to use, move the mouse pointer to one side or the other of the temporary line display, and then click.

  • When the elements you want to use cross each other, you can draw the chamfer in any of the quadrants. The software trims the remaining elements at the end points of the chamfer.

  • You can easily draw more than one 45 degree chamfer with the same setback distance. On the ribbon, type a value in the Setback A or Setback B box. The value in the setback box is active until you change it, so you can click one corner after another to draw equivalent chamfers.

  • You can draw a chamfer by dragging the pointer over the two elements that you want to draw the chamfer between. When you use this method, the setback distance and angle boxes on the ribbon are not active.
