Hi All,

I am struggling with chamfering a cut in a cylinder I have made. Trying to wrap my head around how I maintain sharp edges in the cut whilst keeping the cylinder round. 

This is the shape I have and you can see the areas I want to keep sharp:

Of Course without supporting edges I get this:

I can add supporting edges to get the sharpness I want:

But of course while the cut is the sharpness I want I no longer have a nice cylinder:

So I guess my question then is How do I maintain the sharpness of the cut but also the roundness of the cylinder. If you have any hints tips or tutorials you could share I would be eternally grateful. 

Thanks for your time.
