Trim and Fillet
|Top Previous Next|
Fillet and Chamfer:
These commands exist in Inventor in the sketch tab. Select two lines (use the shift key for multiple selection) then click on the Fillet (or Chamfer only one will be visible at the same time) icon in the toolbar. You can change the radius of the fillet by clicking on the number which specifies the current size.
Chamfers also have a size and again you change change it by double clicking on the number.
In Inventor trimming is easy Create a sketch with two overlapping rectangles, click on the Trim command (middle of the toolbar) and hover the mouse over the lines which intersect. Click to actually trim.
These are sometimes called placed features and should be done at the end of a job, not at the beginning.
