Hi folks,

Just to keep you all entertained, here's my next possibly silly question. I'm following a tutorial and need to perform a sweep. I have done as the tutorial has asked but I am not getting the desired result. The image below is from the tutorial.


The model is a cylinder head which has a water canal either side. The idea is to sweep the canal around the end face (half way) and then mirror the sweep so that it connects to the water canal on the other side of the cylinder head leaving me with a complete water canal. I just can't achieve it!


I've attached my model for your review. I don't want someone to just do it for me, I need to know what I'm doing wrong so that I learn. If you open the model you will see that "sketch 20" is the profile (for the sweep) and that the path is drawn also. Please keep in mind that I am a newbie to SolidWorks, so please explain it like you were talking to a child........... lol.


Cheers,  Dave.
