Control Chamfer Tool Depth



You can now control the depth of the chamfer tool by offsetting the specified drive point above or below the specified chamfer reference.




Created with NX CAM 11.0.0



Chamfer Reference indicates which diameter of the chamfer (minimum or maximum) will be used to reference the offset distance. Depth Offset indicates the distance between the Drive Point and the Chamfer Reference. A positive value offsets the drive point below the referenced chamfer. A negative value offsets the drive point above the referenced chamfer.
