I have chamfer going around my part but I need to make it to stop 2mm's before the corner. How is this done?


Googled example for you.

Hi es12,


As JD mentioned you can use a Sweep feature for this, or you can create an Extrude cut. There are probably some other methods as well. You didn't mention what version of Inventor you're using, but here's an example Inventor 2010 file. Hopefully you can open it.
