Hello, I am trying to do the sweep as shown in the attached file. The path placed at the middle of the profile is the path to sweep on, while the other path is supposed to be used as a guide curve. This is because when I tried to sweep with only the center path, it twisted in many crazy ways that only a guide curve of the same shape would fix. When I try to sweep, and select the guide curve, I get the following error message :

Rebuild Errors: The intermediate profile #2 could not be solved. Consider editing the relations and dimensions of the original section sketch.

See below and try it out. Any help would be awesome!


Note: If you would like to see what the shape of the part is supposed to look like, do a sweep with only the center path, then under the options tab within sweep, select Twist Along Path with Normal Constant. This causes the part to have an non-uniform thickness, but gives a good representation of how the part is supposed to look.
