I'm under the gun on this job and can't get the design started because for some unknown reason my sweep won't work.
Can a sweep guro look at my attached file and tell me what is wrong?
Just change the skecth2 from plane 2 to front.
I didn't even have to change anything, just selected the profile and the path and it worked...
Good morning Dale,
The other thing I just got done with is add a radius in the sketch profile, and that worked here.
What I did the material thickness is .08 so I made the ID rad .08 and the OD rad .160
Thanks to all of your for your quick response. My boss isn't in yet which is a good thing that I have something that works at least.
I used John's suggestion, but also had to change the profile to the Front plane for it all to work. The result is a little wierd though as there is a "funky" radius added towards the bottom of the profile and for some reason most of the surfaces have edges, but the first section does not. Any idea how to get rid of that weird radius blend and make it sharp instead?
Seems to be something with the corners causing self-intersecting geometry. I put a 2" radius in each corner, though ugly, allowed it to work normal to path
It worked fine for me without any changes. Try a surface sweep.
You posted this in the Sheet Metal forum ... are you hoping to convert this to a sheet meta partl?
This will be a sheet metal part in the end. Will I have a problem breaking a sweep into individual sheet metal pieces? Typically there is a ton of welding required in these tub designs. I was hoping that it would be straight forward to create separate bodies from the sweep that I could convert to shet metal later.
I too have problems, but sorry no answer as how to fix it.
