I am trying to sweep sketch along a project curve path. The curvature is throwing me for a loop. Any help?
Project a second curve to use as a guide. Offset from your first curve sketch the same distance as the length of your sweep profile sketch from the centerpoint to where it coincides the main body. In the drop-down options, select "follow path" for orientation & "follow path & 1st guide" for the twist.
Thanks, worked perfectly. I tried guide curves, but didn't realize the drop down menu changes when you have a guide curve selected.
Good attempt, I tried that too, although if you look a the part, it doesnt apprear to be correct, as the sweep is larger on the fist turn.
Hello Jeffery,.. if you split the face or use a edge (ruled surf) then you can apply a profile twist option "Tangent to Adjacent Faces" which will allow the profile to track normal to the cylinder face. (image)
Thanks!. I used the ruled surface to create an edge, then used that edge as a guide curve as Newell suggested.
I was going to suggest that but it errors out with the solid sweep. Did you offset the main surface and then split it?
Hello Newell, for me, it resolves either way,.. I just tested splitting the solid face (no surface offset or ruled surface), same results. (image)
