Get Chamfer Distances Example (C#)

This example shows how to get the distances associated with the selected chamfer.

//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Open a part document with at least one chamfer feature.
// 2. Select the chamfer feature.
// 3. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions: Examine the Immediate window for the
// chamfer data.
