when creating a swept cut using a CompCurve the cut twists. how can i get it to not twist?
Can you upload the part ?
how can i do that?
How to ad a document to the solidworks forum?
here it is.
Is this closer to what you're looking for?
yes it is how did you do it?
The quality of your swept cut will only be as good as your "path" for the swept cut. Therefore, I took your two composite curves and created a 3D sketch (convert entities) on it and then additionally a "Fit Spline on that to smooth it out a bit. The final key is that I created your profile AFTER the path (in the tree) and then did a pierce constraint on it (path.) When creating the swept cut, I also used the option "Path Alignment Type" and directional vector and created an axis going thru the center of your cylinder - this is so the path has something to align to as it sweeps along the 3D path.
great thanks. now to get the rest of the part done.
