##### Chamfer (Even and Uneven)

The chamfer operation flattens edges of a 3D solid or points of a 2D or 1D solid. Chamfers are defined by ranges which represent the distance from the edges to the location on the adjacent faces where the chamfer begins. Even chamfers have a single range that is used for both adjacent faces. Uneven chamfers have two distinct ranges, one for each adjacent face.

The following are important limitations in blending of points:

• Uneven chamfers are not supported on points of 1D (wire) solids.

• Blends are not supported on points of 3D solids.

• Blends on points of 1D (wire) solids are only supported on points at the intersection of two edges of the same solid. Therefore, while you can apply a blend to a point of a polyline wire, you cannot apply a blend to a point shared by two individual wire lines unless you union them together first.

3D Example:

1. Create a box with the corner at (0, 0, 0) and an extent of (1, 1, 0.3).

2. Pick the edge that starts at (0, 0, 0.3) and ends at (0, 1, 0.3).

3. Click the button and choose .

4. In the Edit Properties dialog box, set Range 1 to "`0.1`" and click .

2D examples for chamfers are analogous to these fillet examples.
