CurveWorks features

Chamfer

Chamfer creates a beveled corner by adding two nodes at the specified distance from the cusp, then removing the cusp node.

When this command is issues, a dialog box is shown prompting for the chamfer distance:

All the selected curves are processed. You can also use the Shape tool to select individual nodes of the curve and CurveWorks will trim those corners only.

Note that cusps only are trimmed. Smooth and Symmetrical nodes are ignored.

This command produces results similar to Fillet Line and Scallop Line modes of Fillet command except that the line end nodes are placed at exact distance from the corner along the curve:

This commands can be used on both line and curve segments.
