Solidworks Fillet, Chamfer, and Offset tool image result. The SOLIDWORKS Partial Fillet and Chamfer are new capabilities in SOLIDWORKS 2019 that allow you to customise the length of fillet/chamfer on your model edges. This will allow you to choose the start and finish positions of your fillet/chamfer on existing edges without having to worry about the edges splitting.

The chamfer tool adds a bevelled edge, face, or vertex to a specified edge, face, or vertex. simply select Chamfer from the Insert > Features > Chamfer menu on the Features toolbar.

What's the Difference Between Fillets and Chamfers? Fillets are rounded corners of a design (or a part) that help to minimise stress and avoid rapid deformation at the part's corners. Chamfers, on the other hand, are a design's or part's sloped or slanted edges (typically at 45° or 60°).

Fillets are used to reduce interference drag when aircraft components such as wings, struts, and other surfaces meet one another for aerodynamic reasons. Concave corners are sometimes filled to allow round-tipped end mills to cut away an area of a material in production.

Fillets are used by engineers to lessen the stress on a part. As a result, the fillet helps to disperse stress over a broader area, limiting quick deformation of the stressed portion. Fillet engineering is the greatest alternative for machinists when the design calls for no sharp edges and low stress concentration.
