After working on this bracket, I was left with a dumb solid. Wanted to remove the fillets
and chamfers. In earlier versions I would ‘Thicken Solid’ plus or minus and have to ‘Trim
Solid’ to square up the corners.
Now just enter any greater value, plus for chamfers and inside fillets, or minus for an
outside radius, and the corners are automatically squared.
Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but this is an improvement for me.

Interested way of using that tool on chamfered holes on a solid. I don't know about you but I seek productivity. Wouldn't be easy to delete the hole along with the chamfer in one step using the remove face tool?

I would not have guessed to use that tool on a solid. It appears to have been made to thicken a surface instead. I suppose it works on a surface of a solid as you have shown.

Thanks rockyroad_us,
The 'Remove Face' tool works even better. I use very little of the tools available,
I tried the 'Gripper', never use it, never use 'Push and Pull' and rarely use
any surfacing tools.
The tools I need the most 'Model-to-Sheet' seem to get the least attention from
the developers, and yes, drawings are still needed and required.
