Solids. I'll try your sweeper in awhile. My need is rolling pocket
milling along external edges that don't always terminate where a sweep
expects. Aerocrafty parts. What I've been doing is slicing a brick solid
with a part profile/plane in one direction, and then punching a sweep
profile centerline hole in another direction. Doing a positive fillet on
the new hole's intersecting edge gives me a tool to subtract from the
solid part blank. Time consuming but delivers the correct finished cut.

Sorry for the late answer but i've been on holiday for one month :-)... What I want to say is when you chose the chamfer command, the program asks you to give two variables so the angle of chamfer is not always 45°. In the invsq command it asks only one so the cutout is always a square with both the same sides. I would like to cut out a rectangle with different sides. If it's not clear to you I'll post an example.
