The CHAMFER command makes a chamfer at the intersection of two lines. The prompts are:

(TRIM mode) Current chamfer Dist1 = 10.0000, Dist2 =
10.0000
Select first line or [Polyline/Distance/Angle/Trim/
Method]:
Select second line:


At the first prompt the settings of the CHAMFER command are displayed. A line is selected at the second prompt.Then the following prompt is displayed:

Select second line:

The second line is selected and the chamfer is drawn.
The parts of the lines that overlap the chamfer are removed since the TRIM mode is active.

Note: only lines can be selected. The CHAMFER command can only draw chamfers on lines. Not on arcs, a line and an arc, or a line and a circle.

The CHAMFER command has the following options:

Polyline - This option is used to chamfer a 2D polyline. The option is invoked by entering P at the second prompt.The prompt of this option is:

Select 2D polyline:

After selecting the polyline chamfers are drawn at all vertices of the polyline

Distance - With this option the chamfer distances can be entered. D is entered at the second prompt. The prompts of this option are:

Specify first chamfer distance <10.0000>:
Specify second chamfer distance <10.0000>:

After entering the distances the chamfer command is interrupted. To start the command again a RETURN is given at the command prompt. The entered distances are saved

Angle - The angle under which the chamfer is drawn can be entered in this option. Only the first chamfer distance is entered. To invoke this option A is entered at the second prompt. The prompts of this option are:
