Using the “Offset Face” or “Face-Face” chamfer options within SOLIDWORKS 2017, grants us an additional ability! We can now swap back and forth between a fillet and a chamfer if needed! To do this right-click on either the “Offset Face” or “Face-Face” Chamfer.
And select Convert Chamfer to Fillet from the shortcut menu
Then choose the Feature Type (Fillet or Chamfer) and select the “OK” checkmark to complete the change.
As shown in the figure below the chamfer has now been changed into a fillet, and could be converted back again if required.
