I usually do my chamfering in Fusion360 but to stay entirely within Easel the simplest approach is in my opinion this:
- Establish a Z-reference point outside the material to be carved, I usually use the waste board and raise the bit a certain height above it.
- Do the outline of the project (edge to be chamfered) with your go-to straight bit.
- Change to chamfer bit, re-zero using the same method as first point. No need to change work zero when Z is re-zeroed
- Use a duplicated work piece in Easel and offset the bit path either by “cheating” on the diameter or tool path/design offset.
A chamfer bit isnt effective at its center point because the surface speed of the bit is very low. Running it offset (tip running in air) utilize the edge further away = higher surface cutting speed and cleaner cut.
