How To Use Chamfer In Solidworks?

The Solidworks geometry that will be chamfered

Consider that you have a geometry like that in Solidworks and you want to create chamfered corners on it.

Click on Chamfer command in Solidworks

To do it, click on the Chamfer command in Solidworks as shown by blue arrow above to start to the chamfering operation.

Select a Chamfer method

As shown in blue box above, there is three Chamfer methods.

Angle Distance Chamfer;

Adjust your chamfer parameters

You select your edges from a 3D geometry in Solidworks as shown by blue arrows above, than you need to enter your chamfer length and angle value as in blue box. As you can see from the preview, the angle and length works like above in Chamfer command.

Distance Distance Chamfer

Try different chamfering options

As you can see above, you can enter different chamfer distances as in blue box for your Chamfer operation in Solidworks. You can understand from the preview, the different distanced chamfer geometries could be obtained in Solidworks.

Vertex Chamfer

Vertex chamfering method in Solidworks

Also you can obtain a vertex chamfered geometry by choosing a vertex in Solidworks geometry from green box region as shown by green arrow above. And you enter the each edge’s chamfer length values individually from blue box to obtain your vertex chamfered geometry by using Chamfer command in Solidworks.

Vertex chamfered part in Solidworks

When you done with your Chamfer adjustments, click on the green yes symbol as shown by green arrow above to complete the Chamfer operation in Solidworks.

Exit from Chamfer command in Solidworks

This is the very chamfered vertex example by using Chamfer command in Solidworks.
