Hi!

 

The question is; you have two different distances, and somehow, Inventor has issues split/merge the face between these two distances when you apply chanfer (between extrusion and revolve).

Workaround:

  1. Create the extrusion as a new solid (now you have two solids; multisolid part)
  2. Create the chanfer with the distance you need in the second solid: extrusion.
  3. Use "combine" to join the two solids... and that's it.

Check the attached part.
