Sweep Planar Profile Dialog OptionsKeyCreator \ Create \ Swept-Solid \ Sweep \ Sweep-Planar-Profile-Dialog-Options
When Sweep is selected from the Create>Swept Menu, the Sweep Planar Profile dialog is displayed. Through this dialog, you are able to configure the specific parameters by which the sweep will be created. The settings contained within this dialog are discussed below.
Indicate the method by which the swept profile will end.
The Miter options allow for several options when mitering of the profile is necessary due to sharp corners in the sweep path.
Draft Angle Properties
The Draft Properties options allow you to shrink or expand the profile curve as it sweeps down the path. When sweeping with a draft, the start of the sweep path must lie in the plane of the profile.
While a profile is being extruded, Twist angle allows for the profile to be twisted by a given angle. Twisting is performed about the sweep path.
NOTE: The further the profile is from the sweep path, the more radical the effect of the twist, which may result in undesireable results.
Start and End Positions on Sweep Path, Examples:
In the example below, the planar profiles (a rectangle with rounded corners and two internal circles) are swept along a sweep path (a line and two points, representing the portion of the sweep path along which the profile will be swept).
