  • How do you find the length of my chamfer

    I am trying to find the distance of a chamfer. I have a cylinder and a cone but I have been unable to properly construct all this so that I can find out the distance or length of my chamfer.

    Are you measuring from the CAD?

          Create an intersect circle between the Chamfer and the Cylinder. Use this for location. I assume the other end would be a plane or something

            What IJ just wrote. I was going to go another route but you guys no better than I.

              You can measure a line on each of the 3 surfaces at the same X location. Then construct intersection points and dimension the distances.

                It took me a second to understand this, but it does make sense;
                Take a line on the "top" of the cylinder
                Take a line on the face of the cylinder
                Take a line perpendicular to the chamfer
                Use two Intersect points (Top & Chamfer, Chamfer & Face) and dimension distance.

                I can't find anything wrong with that, technically...

                Exactly! Thank you for clarifying InspectorJestor. With the 3 intersection points you are essentially creating your triangle so you can dimension each distance and angle of all legs involved.

              OK thanks I will try this and see if it works.

                What are you looking for, A or B ?

                For A : what InspectorJester said
                For B : construct another circle between cone and plane
                ASSIGN/B=SQRT(A^2+(CIRC2.R-CIRC1.R)^2), assuming that the circles are concentrics....
