Chamfering consists in removing or adding a flat section from a selected edge to create a beveled surface between the two original faces common to that edge. You obtain a chamfer by propagation along one or several edges.
This task shows how to create two chamfers by selecting two edges. One case illustrates how material is added, the other case shows how material is retrieved.
