Creo 2.0 sketched chamfer and fillets question

Does anyone know the details of what the difference between using a Circular fillet verses a Circular Trim fillet in a sketch? (same with a sketched Chamfer.)



I know that the Cricular fillet adds the construction lines and an intersection point. What is the purpose behind these features and what benefit do I get over the Trim option? By the way, the Trim option seems to be way WF4 worked. Since PTC makes the Circular option the default, I always assumed it must be better.


I have this same question with the sketched chamfer. I had a user delete the vertical constraint and a new dimension pops up within the sketch. It makes the part look over dimensioned. If you start playing around with the intersection points and the construction lines, you can get some very odd diminsional options and geometry constraints.

Those construction lines allow you to dimension to the intersection point. This way you end up with dimensions similar to putting separate dimensions at the end of the model tree.
