Adding a "Path" configuration

By DWu on 11 Jun 14:42 1 answer 0 comments

I am trying to create a configuration that allows you to select the path for a sweep boss extrude. More specifically, I would create a new part. Then I would create a 3D-sketch spline only. Afterwards, I will be able to drag the "routing" part from my library and it would allow me to select the path to sweep. Also I will be able to select the appropriate diameter for the sweep profile from a pre-configured list. I've done this once around a year or so from a file I found online but I have seem to lost it. Does anyone here know how? Thanks!

    Via Weldment:
    1- create a part and save as .prtlfp in "C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\lang\english\weldment profiles\iso\angle iron"
    2- create a sketch as profile
    3- Right click on sketch in tree manger and select "add to library"
    4- save part.
    5- In a new part create path
    6- In weldmet toolbar select "Structure Member"
    7- In left panel select "ISO"->"Angle Iron"->the file that save past.
    8- select path and OK it.
    I hope this guide be helpful.
