Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to bevel two adjoining trace edges in the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Objects » Chamfer command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Enter Value dialog will appear. Use the dialog to enter the X and Y distances from the intersection of the two lines, at which the new connecting line should be drawn. After clicking OK, the cursor will change to a square and you will be prompted to select the first line. Simply position the cursor over the line and click. You will then be prompted to select the second line. Move the cursor over the line and click again. The new connecting line will be inserted, providing the bevelled edge that connects the two original lines.

Continue to chamfer further adjacent lines, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.


  1. Separate the X and Y values in the dialog with a colon.
  2. The chamfer distance may not exceed the extents of the selected lines.
