Modifying entities

Chamfering and filleting entities

You can chamfer or fillet entities. A chamfer connects two nonparallel entities with a line to create a beveled edge. A fillet connects two entities with an arc of a specified radius to create a rounded edge. If both entities you are working with are on the same layer, the chamfer or fillet is drawn on that layer. If they are on different layers, the chamfer or fillet is drawn on the current layer.

The Chamfer/Fillet settings in the Drawing Settings dialog box control the chamfer and fillet settings. The portions of the entities that extend beyond the chamfer or fillet are normally deleted when you create the chamfer or fillet. You can retain these original entities, however, by changing the settings in the dialog box.

 
  1. Click to remove or retain portions of entities that extend beyond the chamfer or fillet.
  2. Click to create a chamfer using two chamfer distances (distance-distance method).
  3. Specify the first and second chamfer distances when using the distance-distance method.
  1. Specify the chamfer length and angle when using the distance-angle method.
  2. Click to create a chamfer using the chamfer length and angle (distance-angle method).
