**3D-Sketch**- not 2D-Sketch, no projection.Awesome job - never thought of doing it that way, so many amazing techniques and ideas here on the forum..

One of my collegeas actually did it in one feature - 3D equation driven curve for sketch and sweep with circualr profile

Very interesting - so let's have a look at the file!

As far as I can see, the Equation Driven Curve uses 3 dimensions, when defined in a 3D-Sketch - interesting! So - if somebody is good enough in math - it should be possible...

Here's my quick take.. Equation Curves are always fun.. but a bit flakey!!

actually quite beautiful

Hi Karan

[Alas] There is no automatic parent relationship to global variables!

You must hit CTRL-Q to force a rebuild.

If it still doesn't update then you've probably exceeded the equation curve features abilities, or made an error.

BTW There is a way to make equation curves update..

- Make a sketch that contains all the parameters you would like included in your equation.
- Link Global Variables to the sketch dimensions.
- Use the Global variables in your equation curve
- Add a sketch point in the sketch with your equation curve and make it coincident with anything convenient in your parameters sketch.

Now changing the first sketch will trigger a rebuild in the second sketch.. and the global variables will be updated!!

Hi,

for me it doesn't look like a real sinus, more like a rounded zick-zack. Anyway.

Here it is. A equation driven curve with an offset (necessary to use the wrap feature). Then wrap, convert an edge to get the path, then sweep. Done.
