Need help with sweep cut

By georgi dobrev on 01 Jul 11:00 7 answers 2 comments

Hi I need help with sweep cutting knife blade. The problem is that i cant sweep from profile along spline to second profile. Sorry if the question is stupid but i am new to solidworks and i dont find something similar in internet.

    I think a change of method.
    I would use mirror at end - this will simplify the sweep cut.
    The path for sweep need to change to get the curve at blunt end.
    For your sweep - try to sketch the profile "normal" to the path, rather than at an angle.

    I would only use the right profile. Make a spline for your profile to follow by using the convert entities ( you may need to extend it past the tip of the blade). If you upload your current file I can play around with it and give you a tutorial.
