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.
Here is how I did it with SW 2012:

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.
