To Exclude Chamfer Pieces
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.
1. Select the references for the chamfer and on the Model tab, click the arrow next to Chamfer, and click Edge Chamfer. The Edge Chamfer tab opens and preview geometry of the chamfer appears.
2. Click the Pieces tab.
3. On the Sets list, select the chamfer set that contains the piece that you want to exclude. All of the chamfer pieces for the current chamfer set are listed on the Pieces table.
4. On the Pieces table, select the chamfer piece that you want to exclude and select Excluded. The chamfer piece is excluded from the model.
5. If you want to exclude another chamfer piece, repeat step 3. and step 4.
6. To include an excluded chamfer piece, select the piece and Included from the Pieces table.
7. Close the Pieces tab to activate Sets mode and continue to work with chamfers.
8. When completed, click to create the chamfer and close the Chamfer tool.
You can also use Excluded or Included from the Pieces tab shortcut menu.
If you excluded multiple pieces in the current chamfer set and want to quickly include them all, select All included from the Pieces tab shortcut menu.
To quickly locate a piece on your model, place your cursor over each piece in the Pieces table, and it is dynamically highlighted in the graphics window.
