About Excluding Chamfer Pieces
You can exclude one or more chamfer pieces in a chamfer set that contains multiple chamfer pieces by using the Pieces tab. Excluding pieces enables you to gain more control over the chamfer geometry.
To exclude chamfer pieces, the current chamfer set must contain two or more chamfer pieces that use one explicit placement reference. This can occur if the chamfer geometry breaks due to non-tangent chains. It can also occur if a single chamfer piece cannot be created at a certain distance value. For example, a chamfer that is too large to sweep around a corner.
Excluding Chamfer Pieces
Before Exclude
After Exclude
The placement edge reference is selected and the chamfer geometry propagates across tangent points. The chamfer piece distance is increased and the geometry breaks resulting in chamfer pieces 1 and 2.
Chamfer piece 2 is selected on the Pieces tab and Excluded is used. The chamfer piece is excluded.
1. Chamfer piece 1
2. Chamfer piece 2
3. Trim/Extend handle
4. Edge reference
5. Existing round geometry
