Config option to set "offset surfaces" or "tangent distance" as default selection in Chamfer feature

Config option to set "offset surfaces" or "tangent distance" as default selection in Chamfer feature

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
Global - All our customers that use the chamfer feature.


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
Creo 7.0.8.0 to Creo 9.0.1.0

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

When you create a chamfer feature Creo automatically selects the Offset Surfaces option instead of Tangent Distance, but this default selection can lead to issues/incorrect chamfer sizes (and thus also to parts being manufactured with the wrong chamfer sizes) because each option uses a different way to calculate the chamfer size - the difference between the two options is explained in detail in article CS149419

 

So for some companies/projects/products, this option has to be manually changed to Tangent Distance for each Chamfer feature, which (for example) can take a lot of time if you are working with models that have a lot of Chamfer features.

 

A new config option would allow the user to set the defaul selected option (Offset Surfaces or Tangent Distance)

4. What is the use case for your organization?
This would make working with chamfers more efficiently

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
This would be a big help for our customers who use Creo: this config option would allow them to set this default selection so they don't have to change this manually anymore.

This would also give them the ability to work more correct and efficient.
