I need to perform a Swept Cut feature using an Elliptical Helix. Attempted to use a Helical Surface and a Elliptical Surface to generate a Split line but the Swept Cut feature does not recognize it. Any suggestions?
Did you try to create a fit spline on your split line while you are in a 3d sketch? Then use the fit spline to drive the sweep.
Using your helical swept surface and a elliptical surface, you should be able to use the Intersection Curve tool to create a good 3Dsketch path for your sweep feature to use.
Edit....file attached. Depending on the profile of your sweep, there may be some twist issues to sort out.
