    Swept Cut Problem

    Timothy Scholl



      I am having trouble making a swept cut using curves.  I have a half-cylinder that I want to cut as if mounted on a cylindrical mill with the axis of rotation along the axis of this half-cylinder.  I have imported the curve specifying the tool cutting path and also a second curve that would be useful as a guide curve.  I would like to cut along the path all the way through the side of the cylinder as if I was using a 1mm diameter end mill cutter.  I have tried making a swept cut sweeping both a sketch and a revolved solid - both attempts have ended in failure.  (Eventually, I will have this part cut with a flow jet machine.) Thanks,  Tim
