Chamfer | How to use Fillet & Chamfer Command in AutoCAD? | A TO Z tutorial with picture | learn Autocad free only at Autocadprojects.com
Previously we learned the Trim and Extend command in detail. Now we will learn fillet command. So, let’s get started.
The Fillet command is useful for joint two lines, arcs, splines, or polylines by 0 angle radius (sharp corner) or by any curve or by the soft curve. This command is the time-saving command.
The Fillet command is placed on the Modify panel in the Home tab. Or we can type ‘FILLET’ in the command bar and presses Enter key to invoke the Fillet command.
Fillet command has three methods to join lines or polylines. We can select another two methods of the fillet by clicking on the Fillet command’s drop-down menu. We will see all three methods with examples one by one.
1 ) Fillet command
By using fillet command we can joint two lines or polylines by a sharp corner or by any radius arc. Follow these steps to know how to use the fillet command
Select Fillet command from the Modify panel in the Home tab. Or type ‘FILLET’ in the command bar and press the Enter key.
If you want to fillet two lines or object by arc, select the ‘Radius’ option from the command bar and give the radius you want. By default without selecting the Radius option, it will be fillet at the sharp corner (at 0 angles).
To use the same fillet radius more than one time, select the ‘Multiple’ option from the command bar.
AutoCAD will ask for the ‘select first object’. Select the first line or object.
Then it will be asking for ‘select second object or shift select to apply the corner’. Select the second line or object.
To use the fillet command on the polyline object, select the polyline option from the command bar. It will fillet all corners of the polyline object a one time.
We will see one example showing how to use the Fillet command:
For example, I want to fillet these two corners as shown.
Select fillet command from the Modify panel in the Home tab. Or type ‘FILLET’ in the command bar and press the Enter key.
I will fillet one corner by sharp corner and other by 50-degree radius.
Select two lines one by one without selecting the radius option.
It will be fillet at 0 angle.
Select the again fillet command and select the radius option from the command bar.
Give radius number 50 and press Enter key.
Select both lines one by one. Both corners will fillet as shown.
Now we will see how to chamfer edges.
This command bevels the edges of the objects. Fillet command curves the corner of the object whereas; chamfer command inclines the edge at a particular angle. Follow these steps for how to use the chamfer command:
Select the chamfer command from the Modify panel in the Home tab. Or type ‘CHA’ in the command bar and press the Enter key.
Chamfer command has Two methods
which can be seen in the command bar.
Distance method: Select the distance method from the command bar or type ‘D’ and press the Enter key.
AutoCAD will ask you for ‘specify first chamfer distance’. (distance between corner and the point from where we want to give angle) Specify the distance of the first line.
Then again AutoCAD will ask for the ‘specify second chamfer distance’. Specify the second chamfer distance of the second line.
Then AutoCAD will ask for ‘Select first line’. Select the first line which you have decided.
Then again it will ask for ‘Specify second line’. Specify the second line.
Lines will be chamfered.
For example, I have given distance from one line is 100 and 80 from the second line as shown.
2. Angle Method
Select the angle method from the command bar or type ‘A’ and press the Enter key.
AutoCAD will ask for the ‘specify chamfer length on the first line’. Specify the chamfer length of the decision first line.
Then it will ask for the ‘specify chamfer angle from the first line’. Give angle to chamfer from the first line.
Lines will be chamfered at the given angle from the first line.
For example, I have given 100 lengths to chamfer from the first line, and the given angle is 45 as shown.
Select the ‘Multiple’ option from the command bar for use chamfer more than one time.
3. Blend curves
The Blend curves create a tangent or smooth spline between the two open curves.
Whereas Chamfer creates beveled corners (that is, straight lines), and Fillet creates round corners (circular arc). Follow these steps for how to use the blend curves command:
Select the blend curves command from the Modify command in the Home tab. Or type ‘BLEND’ in the command bar and press the Enter key.
AutoCAD will ask for ‘select first object’. Select the first object or line.
Then it will ask for ‘select second object’. Select the second object or line.
The smooth curve will be drawn as shown.
For drawing more than one curve, select the continuity option from the command bar. And select tangent or smooth which you want.
Spline drawn by a tangent or smooth curve is the ‘spline cv’. We can modify the curve by edit cv points.
