I'm running through the book for Advanced Surface Modeling because I'm about to do some ID type models. I'm frustrated with lesson 2. It asks to sketch the two shown profiles, one for a sweep path and one for the profile and convert them both to splines using Fit Spline.

Every time I run the sweep, it fails to generate it. The preview shows fine, but it still fails. Does it have to do with where the spline handle is placed? I can't seem to control that if it is. Is there anyway to determine why it fails? I've tried every different way of creating the splines (leaving the geometery, deleting the geometry, etc.)

Anyone else run into this issue when taking this class? I don't remember it from when I took the class, but that was a long time ago and the examples seem to have been updated. This is the 2007 version I'm looking at right now.
