Chamfer command in AutoCAD 2022 is used to beveled edges at the corners of the object. In a real-time scenario, sharp corners are the regions where stress gets concentrated and causes failure to the component. So, it is indispensable to avoid these sharp corners either by providing a fillet or chamfer as these reduce the stress concentration. Chamfering is just providing a slant to the sharp corner.

The two standard methods of enabling the chamfer command are explained below:

  1. First Method:
    In this method, the command is enabled by clicking on the icon shown below which is present in the ribbon panel.
    Chamfer Command (step 1)
  2. Second Method:
    It is an alternative method in which the command is enabled by typing CHA in command line.

Now, let us understand the concept of this command easily with the aid of examples for more clarity about it. There are two major methods of creating a chamfer at a sharp corner and they are explained below:

(a) Distance Method

In this method, the length of the first and second chamfer is specified and so the chamfer is created as per the requirement.

  • Open a new design workspace in the AutoCAD 2022.
    Chamfer Command (step 2)
  • Draw two perpendicular lines of random dimension at any point in the design workspace.
    Chamfer Command (step 3)
  • Enable the chamfer command by anyone of the methods explained above.
    Chamfer Command (step 4)
  • Now click on the Distance option visible in the command line for enabling the distance method.
    Chamfer Command (step 5)
  • Specify the length of the first chamfer and press enter.
    Chamfer Command (step 6)
  • Again, specify the length of the second chamfer and press enter.
    Chamfer Command (step 7)
  • Now, select the first line and the second line.
    Chamfer Command (step 8)
  • Thus, the chamfer is created as per the requirement.
    Chamfer Command (step 9)

(b) Angle Method

In this method, the length of the first chamfer and the chamfer angle is specified and so the chamfer is created as per the requirement.

  • Open a new design workspace in the AutoCAD 2022.
    Chamfer Command (step 10)
  • Draw two perpendicular lines of random dimension at any point in the design workspace.
    Chamfer Command (step 11)
  • Enable the chamfer command by anyone of the methods explained above.
    Chamfer Command (step 12)
  • Now click on the Angle option visible in the command line for enabling the distance method.
    Chamfer Command (step 13)
  • Specify the length of the first chamfer and press enter.
    Chamfer Command (step 14)
  • Specify the chamfer angle and press enter.
    Chamfer Command (step 15)
  • Now, select the first line and the second line.
    Chamfer Command (step 16)
  • Thus, the chamfer is created as per the requirement.
    Chamfer Command (step 17)
