Have vertical corners rounded, but horizontal corners bevelled/chamfered...

Hello:

I'm trying to teach myself AutoCAD. I'm doing AUGI, and every tutorial that I can find.

So I figured I'd give myself a little "test" and started trying to make a "hypothetical" entertainment center. I had just started when I ran into something I can't seem to figure out how to do. Now lets see if I can explain it.

OK so I have a box .....

Looking down at it from the top, you can see that the 4 corners have a round-over (rounded) (Fillet-ed) edge. R=.187

but... if you look at it from the side view...
I want it to have a chamfered edge going all around the top of the box.

How can I have the vertical corners rounded, but the horizontal corners beveled/chamfered on the same box?

I've tried everything I can think of (but evidently there is one thing I didn't think of...right?)
making them all lines, polylines, keeping them as a 3D Box, 1st beveling them as a 2D thing, then trying the roundovers after extrustioning it, etc.... I can't seem to figure out this little step.

any suggestions...

thanks
Bruce

I am no guru but I have been doing this for over 10 years now. I can not see anyway to achieve what you are asking.

You can chamfer the edges at the top and the fillet the vertical edges only. This will give you a radius to chamfer edge at each of those upper corners. It is easier to do the chamfer first then do the fillet.

From your question it sounds like you are wanting 2 different profiles at the same corners but show differently depending on whether you are looking at it from the side or top, correct?

Just do a simple fillet with a 1/8" radius. It'll work. If not, post the drawing file. We'll get this puppy filleted!

Hi Bruce

Please note I have *moved* this thread from the ATP Program Feedback forum to this one, as I feel this particular forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

Thanks, Mike

Like this?

Verticals filleted first then top edges chamfered in a loop.

That was what I was trying to tell him last night! Only I could not get the chamfer to work in a loop unless I did it first.

Still no response from the original poster though.

The OP might be out in the workshop with a wooden box and router trying it.

hi

I have made the solution available in Zip Filein autodesk Inventor

Yes, that is exactly what he was trying to create in ACAD!
