AutoCAD Chamfer

The chamfer command in AutoCAD is used to create slanted edges.

We are required to select the two adjacent lines to create chamfer between them as shown in below image:

Here, 1 and 2 are the selected lines.

We can create the chamfer by specifying either the chamfer distance or angle.

Let's discuss in detail with two examples. Consider the below image:

  3. Press Enter.
  4. Specify first distance value and press Enter.
  5. Specify second distance value and press Enter.
    Here, we have specified the first and second distance value as 2 and 3.
  6. Click on the first line and the second line, as shown in the below image:
