I am trying to swept cut a profile along a path. Somehow swept cut feature does not work well in this case.
This is a message which appears:
I attached the file also.
V.K., Your profile sketch cannot coincide with the outer edge of the round for the swept cut to work. Eliminate the 1" dimension and drag the sketch past the edge of the part and that will allow the swept cut feature to work. You will want to re-dimension that sketch so that it is fully defined.
I believe you're getting the error because if the profile cut follows the Helix/Spiral it will intersect itself. If you increase the pitch, or make the profile smaller, then the Cut-Sweep will work.
