I am unable to sweep this profile (Sketch6). How to fix it?
how have you defined sketch 6? Is it a convert entities of the surface? Again, I can't open your file. But i think if you make sketch 6 a circle concentric to the surface with a pierce relation to sketch 5 then it should work.
Actually, make the centre of sketch 6 pierce relation to sketch 4 along with the pierce to sketch 5 previously mentioned.
See attached Maha
Sketch6 was a convert entity but I changed it to an original sketch. I am unable to establish any relation between Sketch5 and Sketch6.
edit sketch 6, is it blue? if it is black, how was it defined? if you select the circle and the end point of sketch 5 you can use a coincident mate also.
Color change will happen just before the relation establish. Original color is as follows. I assume it is with SW software.
Hi Maha, colours are SW defaults, though you can change them if you desire. Best if you don't as it helps people troubleshoot your questions.
Delete the circle, create a new one with the centre coincident with the end of sketch 4. Select the circle and the end point of sketch 5, make coincident. Select sweep feature, select circle as profile, select sketch 4 as path, select sketch 5 as guide curve. should work.
The 0.75" Radius dimensions in your guide path sketch are too small for the profile, and that's why it won't work. I increased that dimension to 2" and the Sweep worked fine (although I just used that sketch for the Path instead of using it as a guide path).
From the way Maha has got the sweep setup I'm guessing the intention is for the diameter to decrease in the first part of sketch 5
Do you have a reference that you are trying to follow - or is this your own design?

A question of my own on this if I may? Should you really need a guide curve for such a simple sweep?
If he's after this result he does
I have done it. But two things involved in. I do not know why.
But in the tutorial without using Selection Manager Job was done. I do not know how. Any body can explain this differences.
