Thanks Ole!
I will study your example for future use.
What if you needed to have an angled work plane in there?

Glad that helped,
As Ole said, create in place, as subassembly, is
probably the best way for inventor. The yoke on a tap, then
the path and sweep through whatever hole it attaches to,
using in-line work features, then add a swage. It'll look
sharp and respond to changes in the assy.

That's *WAY* over my head.
I need to get some serious training here.

Construct an angled workplane. See Inventors help. Explained better by
AutoDesk.

Not to be a crass, but I haven't found anything to be explained better by
AutoDesk.
I think they could have done a much better job with the help section and the
hard copy book.

Ken,
Check out these http://www.inventorparts.com/Animations/Default.htm,
created by Charles Bliss, for an excellent tutorial on creating 3D Sweeps.

Re: 3D Sweep in Standard Part

Yeah ... It's pretty easy now with R6. I put a quick example in CF.

Th3 3D Intersection feature may be useful in your situation if it needs to
wrap around parts.

kewl,
That's something I haven't even gotten close to
exploring yet. I do a lot of webbing components and this
might be just the thing to get me over the top in accurate
modeling of those kind of problems.
so much to learn, so little time,
thanks,
darvin
