I am using a swept base. It has a profile and a path and two guide curves."Merge smooth edges", is checked. I am getting gaps between the edges. Any suggestions
I notice in your feature tree that you have 3 solid bodies. Is that what you want? Do the gaps show up between the bodies? Can you merge the bodies? If so, do the gaps disappear?
It could be that the gaps appear because you used sketched edges, possibly from Convert Entities, rather than the actual edges to define the Sweep.
I've tried to merge the bodies, but get the error, " Operations failed due to Geometric conditions"
Are you sure that those are gaps and not just graphics glitches?
I sent this to a vendor in an iges format. Once they loaded it into their software they saw it and brought it to my attention.
The gaps are there because the Tapered Base sweep isn't set to merge with the outer body. You have Merge Result checked, but then in Feature Scope only the inner body is selected so it is only merging with that one. I notice that selecting All bodies in Feature Scope results in an error. I can't really help you with that other than to say that I don't think a sweep is the best feature to create that geometry. I'd suggest looking back at your earlier discussion where some alternate methods were proposed.
