Modifying 3D Solids

Unlike the Boolean operations, the operations discussed in this chapter modify a single 3D solid object. You will use them to create and edit new features on your solid models.

This chapter

• shows you how the CHAMFER command is used to bevel sharp edges of 3D solids;

• describes how to cut a 3D solid into two separate pieces;

• explains how to edit 3D solids with AutoCAD 2000’s SOLIDEDIT command.
