How to use chemfer command

Chamfer Command in Autocad

Now in this video, we will learn what is Chamfer command in AutoCAD.

Follow Below Steps for Chamfer Command in AutoCAD: 

We will first type 'rectangle' in our command prompt and see many options shown to include the chamfer command. We will select the chamfer command option, and it will ask us to specify the first chamfer distance for the rectangle and after that second chamfer distance for the rectangle.

After that, we will specify the first corner point on our screen and then expand our rectangle as much we want and then click on the second point.

Now we will see that on every corner point of our rectangle, the chamfer is applied.

Now we will see another option, i.e., 'Fillet.' In this, we will ask to specify the fillet radius for the rectangle and then specify the first and second corner points of the rectangle.

We will see that fillet has been applied according to our provided radius of the fillet on every corner point of the rectangle.

Now we will see another option, i.e. 'Thickness.' In this, we will be asked to specify thickness for the rectangle, we will enter it. After that, we will draw a rectangle and observe that we are unable to see the consistency of our rectangle from a top view, so for that, we will change our perspective to the left, and we will see that the thickness of a rectangle has been changed.

We can also change the rectangle view to 'isometric,' which will provide us with a better idea about the rectangle's thickness change.
Another option we have is 'Width.' In this, we will ask to specify line width for rectangle, and as soon as we draw the rectangle, we will be able to see the width increase of the rectangle.

Similarly, we can use another option, i.e., 'Elevation.' It will ask us to specify the height we want between two rectangles, and as soon as we provide it, the size will change for that. It can be seen in isometric view and by also changing the orbit rotation. We will see that the change in height between two rectangles.



A chamfer is a beveled edge that makes a sharp corner more gradual and easier to work with. A chamfer in AutoCAD is a type of fillet (a rounded edge) that is created by offsetting one or more edges of an object. The function of this tool is to soften the corners of the design and make it easier to work with.

  • A fillet is a type of joint that is used to cover the end of a circular, square, or rectangular tube. It is typically used when the length of the tube exceeds the thickness. A fillet can also be used to cover sharp edges on metal or plastic.
  • A chamfer is a type of joint that gradually reduces the size of one surface in relation to another. It can be either a flat surface or an edge. It is often used in architecture and furniture design to soften corners and edges.

  • The fillet and chamfer tools are used to round the edges of a shape. The fillet tool creates a rounded end on an object, while the chamfer tool creates a rounded edge.
  • The first step is to select the shape that you want to round off. You can select multiple shapes at once if you want them all to be the same size. Once you have selected your shapes, go ahead and click on Fillet or Chamfer in the Draw panel. This will bring up the Fillet/Chamfer toolbar. There are two options for using this tool: You can either choose "Fillet" or "Chamfer".

The maximum distance that can be filleted or chamfered is 8" in a single pass.

The fillet and chamfer tools are used to create a smooth transition between two surfaces. The fillet tool is used to create a rounded edge on a corner or an object. The radius of the fillet can be set by the user, depending on the desired effect. The chamfer tool is used to create a slanted edge on an object, which can be used for aesthetic purposes, as well as to allow for easier access to certain objects. The height of the chamfer can also be set by the user, depending on what type of effect they want.
