Assembly mode cuts and chamfers in Creo 2 M50

I am looking to create several cuts and then break the edges with a chamfer in assy mode.

I created the cuts and select the edges and the chamfer icon is greyed out.

Did we loose functionality in Creo? (I just updated from WF4)

Re: Assembly mode cuts and chamfers in Creo 2 M50

Chamfers and rounds have never been available in Assembly mode.

The reason according to PTC is that they have the ability to add material (think of the internal corner chamfer or round) and in an assembly, you can only add “material” by assembling parts (or assemblies).

I guess it’s a valid reason but I really don’t agree with it.

Re: Assembly mode cuts and chamfers in Creo 2 M50

In today's fabrication world, adding material at the assembly level is quite likely in cases of deposition, coatings and treatment, or even screening processes. It is a shame these capabilities were not enhanced with the advent of Creo.
