Get Edge Chamfer Distances Example (C#)

This example shows how to get the distances of the edges and vertices for the chamfer feature.

//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the part document to open exists.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Opens the specified part document.
// 2. Creates a chamfer feature.
// 3. Examine the Immediate window for the chamfer data.
//
// NOTE: Because this part document is used elsewhere, do not
// save any changes.
