"Grind" feature


There have been a few times we could have done with a feature: Insert > Grind > Edge.

You know when you model a part with complex edges that you just want to add a constant chamfer, except a chamfer doesn't work how you'd expect?

The alternative is a swept cut, but this becomes quite involved by the time you work it out.

In real life, you would just run a grinder along the edge to remove the sharp corners - it would be cool to do this on a model...

I agree with you generally but if they were to develop an insert > grind > edge feature it would be the same as refining the insert > chamfer feature.
