Is there a config setting to change the default action in Intersect Components to manual instead of the Auto update as seen below? Historically users have been creating the machining features shown in the figure below by making an extruded cut to face off the top of the spacer and the creating a hole through the 3 components. After this they will either create a revolve to make the lead-in chamfer and a lead-out chamfer on the opposite side, or they will use a swept cut using the edge of the hole as a trajectory. We have been getting a lot of feature failures for the revolves and sweeps when regenerating. We have tried using a blend to create the chamfer or a sketched hole feature to create both the hole and the 2 chamfers and these do not cause a problem. Why is the chamfer tool not available to create this type of feature? How else are you dealing with this type of feature?
This sort of feature should be a lot easier to create than it is or are we just missing something?
