Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Fillet and Chamfer, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Fillet and Chamfer are two very similar tools.…Both allow you to join lines together at an intersection,…but Fillet does this with a radius curve,…and Chamfer does it with a straight line.…I'll go here to the Fillet tool…and I'm asked to select my first line.…But first let's take a quick look at the command line.…Right now the Radius is set to zero.…This is actually very helpful for us…if we want to join two lines at an intersection…without having to extend one of them first.…
I'll just select the two lines,…but keep in mind, just like the extend tool,…we need to select the lines near the end…we want to extend.…So I'll select my lines here…and here…and AutoCAD extends both of the lines…so they meet at a perfect point.…Now I'll hit return to reenter the command…and this time I'm going to change…the Radius from zero to three…by typing in r for Radius and return…and giving it a value of 3…and return.…Now I'm gonna select the two lines here and here…and we can see that AutoCAD calculates how far back…to trim the lines and places an arch…
