How can something so simple be so difficult - chamfer on hex nut


New member
Hi, I'm new to Catia trying to move from Solidworks, todays problem was how to create the slight chamfer that you get on the ends of a nut, these are not on the flats but on the corners, easy in solidworks, with a cut command and changing the angle, but no-one I have spoken to knows an easy way in Cativa R5v17, any suggestion very welcome.
Regard Richard.

1. pad a cylinder
2. chamfer the edge
3. using a hexagon sketch, pocket it but click the reverse side feature so everything outside of the hexagon sketch is removed.
