As you can see on the picture, when i select an edge in the chamfer function, it cuts through all depth, not just the desired distance. Works fine with fillet function. This keeps driving me mad.
Hello Gabor,.. yeah, SW chamfer has ALWAYS been weak, imho.... here's a workaround (for pre 2017).. doing a split and replace face.
..for >2017 versions use Face.. (thanks Kevin Pymm for showing this!)
Here is another way i.e. splitting the body, adding the chamfer and combining again.
If you use the Face Face option it cuts as expected. Whether this will work in all cases for you I don't know.
Thanks for showing this to me, Kevin Pymm !
Looks like "Face" was added in 2017.. (which I don't use).. and it works for both Solids and Surfaces (which is wonderful!)
I tried that but it didn't make any difference sadly, still picked the extra edge.

If that's the case then there is a small gap in between the solids, if it's a true solid it would stop and not continue...
I was using Paul Salvador's replication of the OP's part when I tried it. SW's isn't actually picking an extra edge, it doesn't seem to know how to terminate the Chamfer in this case, it just continues the Chamfer face up & cuts off the rest of the solid body it comes across.
