Adding a chamfer to steel part, using ballnose cutter...

Full disclosure, I'm new to Fusion360 but believe I have successfully fumbled my way through a lot of it.


I am trying to add a chamfer to this steel part, using a ballnose end mill but am not sure how to do it.  Can anyone help guide me to making a chamfer and using a ballnose, using multiple passes?




I can do it via 2D chamfer, but only using a chamfer bit in 1 pass.

Also, the model in Fusion360 does not have the chamfer built in and I'm using the model as stock, if that matters.

Hi, many ways to do it.  Parallel, Flow, Flow Preview would be the easiest and probable best ones to try.

Can I do Flow (never used it before) if the chamfer isn't already built in to the model?

No, you need to have the chamfer modeled.


If the issue with a Chamfer tool and one pass is that it's too much of a cut, you could duplicate the toolpath and play with different values to give you a quasi form of "multiple depths"
