This is not a problem with SWX - this is pure ignorance and inexperience. I can pick my path using "select tangency" before I am in the feature - but Sweep defaults to selecting the profile first, so it puts my path into the profile collector. Delete that reference and pick my sketch for the profile and switch to the path collector - RMB on the edge and "select tangency" is not there anymore. So I go to the SelectionManager (real potential here if I could figure it out...) and I manage to select the edges (they ARE tangent and the Selection Manager does propagate the selection all the way around.) Now I have a path selected, but I get an error message.
I think the sketch needs to be at the endpoint of the path...? Do I reqally need to create a plane at the endpoint and sketch on that plane for my sweep to work? Can't I sweep in both directions?
Can you please help me out with some of the sweep path rules I need to follow?
