Chapter 10. Basic Object Editing > Chamfering Corners

Chamfering Corners

If your design requires you to draw a beveled corner, use the CHAMFER command. The CHAMFER command is used to bevel corners formed by two nonparallel lines, rays, xlines, or the joined line segments of a single polyline. To issue this command, you choose Chamfer from the Modify pull-down menu or toolbar. To use the CHAMFER command, you first set the parameters defining the bevel to be generated and then select the two line segments that form the corner.

Defining the Bevel

To obtain the desired bevel, you first define one of two sets of parameters. One set of parameters, accessed with the Distances option, enables you to define the beveling operation with two distances—one along the first selected line and the other along the second selected line. Both distances are measured from the corner, or intersection, of the two lines (see Figure 10.21).
