To Create an Angle x D Chamfer

  1. In the graphics window, select the references from which to create the chamfer. Notice that the chamfer propagates across tangent neighbors until it encounters a break in tangency. However, if you use a One-by-One chain, the chamfer does not propagate across tangent neighbors.

Note: Press CTRL+click to select additional references for the active chamfer set or to remove a reference.

  1. Click on the Feature toolbar or Insert > Chamfer > Edge Chamfer. The Chamfer tool opens and Pro/ENGINEER displays preview geometry. Notice that the selected references are in the References collector on the Sets slide-up panel.

  2. Click Sets. On the Sets slide-up panel, select the chamfer creation method that you want to use. The default chamfer creation method is Offset Surfaces.

  3. Select the Angle x D dimension scheme from the Dimension Scheme box on the dialog bar. You can also select this scheme from the shortcut menu.

  4. To define the distance, drag the distance handle to the preferred distance or snap it to a reference. Pro/ENGINEER displays the distance value in the graphics window and dynamically updates the preview geometry.

Note: You can also type a new value or select a recently-used value from the D box on the Dialog Bar. The same method applies to the distance box in the Distance table (D column) located on the Sets slide-up panel.

  1. To define the angle, drag the angle handle to the preferred chamfer angle. Pro/ENGINEER displays the angle value in the graphics window and dynamically updates the preview geometry.

Note: You can also type a new angle or select a recently-used angle from the Angle box on the Dialog Bar. The same method applies to the angle box in the Distance table (Angle column) located on the Sets slide-up panel.

  1. At this point the chamfer is complete. If you need to define the chamfer further, refer to the topics under See Also for more information.

  2. Click to save your changes. Pro/ENGINEER creates the chamfer and closes the Chamfer tool.
