How can I only chamfer selected edges?

I’m sure this used to work fine in the past, but when I go to chamfer it does the circumference of the entire model, instead of just the edge I’ve selected. In the example I’m working on here, I only want the 3 highlighted edges to be chamfered, yet just selecting one edge will chamfer around the entire model. I was looking for some sort of setting similar to the offset tool where you can choose single or loop, but there’s nothing.

Any ideas?

Make a construction plane (at a point perp to a line) for each edge you want to chamfer, draw a triangle and sweep it on that line segment. Repeat for each segment you want Chamfered.
Kludgy but it will work.

Damn, that’s fairly involved for something that should be relatively simple? No idea why there’s no loop/single toggle. They already solved that with offset edges.

puts hand up for feature request :rofl:

Well you could duplicate the body, hide it, cut the first body where you don’t want fillets and then merge the 2 bodies :rofl:

Someone else might know a better way. I’m still on my first cup and groggy.

Select the edges you want to chamfer, and chamfer as you did.
Then open history tab and expand the chamfer step. There is a toggle switch named include tangent edges, just switch it off and it should do the job.


Be nice if that were a selection on the Chamfer/Fillet tool.

  • Auto
  • Select edges
  • Tangent edge
  • 2-distance

You know what’s mad? I’m pretty sure in the non-Pro version it will only chamfer one edge at a time, either that or it did in the old days. Seems odd not to have a simple feature like that

Oh, looks like we have a solution! What a beauty. Thanks so much
