Chamfer ribbon bar


Use this ribbon bar to chamfer existing entities. Before you select the entities to chamfer, choose the chamfer method, and enter the necessary distance and angle values. Then choose the first and second entities. Mastercam’s auto-preview feature displays a temporary fillet at the selected location.

You can also choose to trim to the chamfer or to leave the selected lines untrimmed. Trimming is the default, so for no trimming, select the No Trim button.




  • This ribbon bar does not recognize chains. Use the Chain Chamfer ribbon bar to chamfer chained geometry.
  • AutoCursor is unavailable during the use of this ribbon bar.
  • You can chamfer arcs using the 1 Distance and 2 Distance methods.
