    Sweep Boss in 2 directions, from one curve?

    Chris Mandeen

      I would like to Sweep Bose/Base along a curve from a sketch on that curve.  The sketch is not at the end of that curve, it is on a Datum intersecting it.  When I choose the Profile and Path, it only Sweeps in one dirrection, and I cannot get it to do the other.  I would be ok with having another feature and making a 2nd Sweep to go in the other dirrection, but SolidWorks ends up just duplicating the first Sweep in the original dirrection.  The only solution I have now is to duplicate the sketch, and then trim them both to be unique, but complementary. This has come up a few times now and I'd really nice to know a better way to do it.

      Ideas, recommendations?

      Thanks!
