The distances and angles that you specify are
applied in the order that you select the objects.
You can chamfer lines,
polylines, rays, and xlines.
can also chamfer 3D solids and surfaces. If you select a mesh to
chamfer, you can choose to convert it to a solid or surface before
completing the operation.

If you select lines or polylines, their lengths
adjust to accommodate the chamfer line. You can hold down Shift
while selecting the objects to override the current chamfer distances
with a value of 0.
If the selected objects are line segments of
a 2D polyline, they must be adjacent or separated by no more than
one segment. If they're separated by another polyline segment, CHAMFER
deletes the segment that separates them and replaces it with the
you select an edge on a 3D solid, you must indicate which one of
the two surfaces adjacent to the edge is the base surface.
surface selection option [Next/OK (current)] <OK>: Enter n or o, or
Entering o or
pressing Enter sets the selected surface as the base surface. Entering n selects
either of the two surfaces adjacent to the selected edge.

other surface chamfer distance <current>:
you select the base surface and the chamfer distances, select the
edges of the base surface to chamfer. You can select edges individually
or all the edges at once.

Chamfers an entire 2D polyline.
Select 2D polyline:
The intersecting polyline segments are chamfered
at each vertex of the polyline. Chamfers become new segments of
If the polyline includes segments that are too
short to accommodate the chamfer distance, those segments are not
Sets the distance of the chamfer from the endpoint
of the selected edge.
Specify first chamfer
Specify second chamfer
If you set both distances to zero, CHAMFER extends
or trims the two lines so they end at the same point.
Sets the chamfer distances using a chamfer distance
for the first line and an angle for the second line.
Specify chamfer length

Controls whether CHAMFER trims the selected
edges to the chamfer line endpoints.
Enter Trim mode option
[Trim/No trim] <current>:
Trim sets the
to 1; No Trim sets TRIMMODE to 0.
If the TRIMMODE system variable is set to 1,
CHAMFER trims the intersecting lines to the endpoints of the chamfer
line. If the selected lines do not intersect, CHAMFER extends or
trims them so that they do. If TRIMMODE is set to 0, the chamfer
is created without trimming the selected lines.
Controls whether CHAMFER uses two distances
or a distance and an angle to create the chamfer.
Enter trim method [Distance/Angle]
Chamfers the edges of more than one set of objects.
CHAMFER displays the main prompt and the Select Second Object prompt
repeatedly until you press Enter to end the command.
