the graphics window, select the references from which to create the chamfer.
Note: Press CTRL+click to select additional references for the active chamfer set or to remove a reference.
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.
Select Angle x D from the Dimension Scheme box on the Dialog Bar.
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 most 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.
define the angle, drag the angle handle 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 most 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.
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.
Click to save your changes. Pro/ENGINEER creates the chamfer and closes the Chamfer tool.
To quickly define a distance, simply double-click the distance value in the graphics window. After the box opens, type a new value and press ENTER, or select a most recently used value from the list.
You can always select Default in a most recently used list to enable Pro/ENGINEER to determine the value.
As you work in the graphics window, you can use Clear from the shortcut menu to clear all references from the active collector.
To remove a reference from within a collector, select the reference that you want to remove, and with your cursor still in the collector right-click and select Remove from the shortcut menu.
