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.
How do you find the length of my chamfer

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...

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.RCIRC1.R)^2), assuming that the circles are concentrics....
