Our customer has sent us a drawing, but is unable to send us a solid model.
The part requires a ball mill to cut a series of rounded slots in the face of a part.
The drawing shows the profile of the slot (the guide curve) as a 2-d sketch, and the length of the slot in radial degrees.
I fully understand the sketch, and I also understand the intent... but I am unable for the life of me to get SW to let me wrap the guide curve around the necessary diameter.
I am using a closed sketch, assuming I could simply Insert->Features->Wrap->Scribe and then grab the profile to drive my radius cut... but I am unable to complete the wrap operation, "Wrap failed, could not use any contour(s) from sketch.
Could any gurus please explain it to me in small words?
