I need to sweep a surface along a path (file attached) however when I attempt this is simply get the response 'unable to sweep 1 selected object'. I have used this path before an a similar surface and so know there is no problem with the path. I simply do not understand what the issue is. I have also tried lofting as well as extruding along the path and this does not work either. Please help!
to be more exact about the corrupt path..the right halve is OK...double line is in the left part..so I deleted the left half...mirrored the right one..made a polyline
Do you know the command "overkill"?? just type it in and it will delete duplicated (double) lines......not much engineers know of this command, give it a try....you'll love it...
glad to be of assistance...that's is what this community is all about..together we can reach a higher lever.....all the way to the top, my friend.......to the top!!! (I reached the top in your country, because I designed the cladding panels for the London Bridge Shard...and lots and lots of other large structures in London)
Overkill?? Just type it in while your sketching? I'm guessing not like that, cus i got a lot of shortcuts.
And what about lines that will disappear, that you actually needed? Or will it break the lines in two then?
This sounds like an insane feature, does inventor has something like it?
By the way, love your Work, have been following for some time here and there.
Hans that's fantastic, I nearly drove myself insane trying to figure it out, good to now I am not going mad! I am going to look in to all your suggestions, maybe Solidwords is the way forward if it'll make my life a lot easier! Thanks again your a legend, I hope your still around when I have my next question:)
Simple solution....the path is NOT one line..I have checked the sketch and it are actually 2 lines...not one...so redraw the path as one line (make a polyline) and it will work
Hans thank you so much for your swift response. However I do apologise, the line was originally one continuous line but I halved it in my attempts to find a solution. I attached the wrong drawing. So I do apologise, but even using the drawing you attached is will not sweep along this line and I don't know why. Would you mind trying yourself?
path must be in polyline or the created lines must be in same plane...
