Chamfer on edge of tapered side

Chamfer on edge of tapered side

RE: Chamfer on edge of tapered side

(OP)
Hi,

Can someone help me.

The chamfer option works only when the reference object is horizontal. If its not, is there any option to callout the chamfer dimension?

RE: Chamfer on edge of tapered side

Which version of NX are we talking about?

RE: Chamfer on edge of tapered side

Is it the Chamfer : "chamfer to be added" you are thinking of ? ( That you want to cut in the solid body)
or is it the dimension on the drawing ?

Regards,
Tomas

NX 11 Version.

I want to callout chamfer dimension in drawing on the edge where Note chamfer to be added is given.

RE: Chamfer on edge of tapered side

As far as I remember (in NX11), the Chamfer automatic callout is only working on perpendicular faces.

"As far as I remember (in NX11), the Chamfer automatic callout is only working on perpendicular faces"

I think this is pretty logic, a chamfer dimension such as: "Chamfer 4x45° " does include the specific angle, and if that corner isn't 90°,
- then how do we measure the angle, and which side of the chamfer is the "master" ?

The image below shows how we annotated chamfers before the specific chamfer dimension type was added to NX.

Regards,
Tomas

Thanks for clearing this.
