Ansys DesignModeler – Blend & Chamfer

The Chamfer feature allows you to create planar transitions (or chamfer faces) across model edges. This feature can be executed on both frozen and active bodies beginning in version 11.0. Prior to version 11.0, this feature would only operate on active bodies.

You can preselect 3D edges and/or faces for chamfering, and/or you can select 3D edges and/or faces while in the chamfer creation itself. If a face is selected, all the edges from that face are chamfered. Preselection allows additional options from a right mouse button context menu for face edge loop selection and smooth 3D edge chain selection from the model. Every edge on a face has a direction. This direction defines a right and left side.

Chamfer is defined either by two distances from the edge for the planar transition (chamfer face), or by a distance (left or right) and an angle. The type of chamfer is defined in the Details View along with the distances and angle. Clicking Generate completes the feature creation and updates the model.

In this tutorial, you will learn to use Chamfer tool using Ansys DesignModeler.

The Thin/Surface feature allows you to convert solids into thin solids or surfaces. The feature can operate on both active and frozen bodies. Typically, you will select the faces to remove, and then specify a face offset that is greater than or equal to zero (>=0).

Some import types (ACIS and AutoCAD) allow you to specify the units of the imported model. Before clicking Generate, you may be able to change the model units from the Details View, depending on the type of import. Note that some model types store their units, so no Model Units property will appear when importing them.
