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.

the first of two edges required to define a 2D chamfer, or the edge
of a 3D solid to chamfer.
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
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.
- Enter Surface Selection Option
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.
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.

Reverses the previous action in the command.
Chamfers an entire 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 chamfered.
Sets the distance of the chamfer from the endpoint
of the selected edge.
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.
Controls whether CHAMFER trims the selected edges
to the chamfer line endpoints.
Trim sets the TRIMMODE
system variable 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.
Chamfers the edges of more than one set of objects.
