About Chamfer Creation Methods
Various attributes are used to create the chamfer geometry (chamfer pieces). These attributes include the chamfer creation method. The creation method is the way in which the system creates the chamfer geometry. Different creation methods result in different chamfer geometry. To simplify the chamfer creation process, the system uses a default creation method. You can change the default creation method at any time in your design session by using the Creation Method box on the Sets tab.
The following chamfer creation methods exist:
Offset Surfaces—Determines the chamfer distance by offsetting the neighboring surfaces of the edge reference. This creation method id selected by default.
Tangent Distance—Determines the chamfer distance with vectors that are tangent to the neighboring surface of the edge reference.
