I have an Ipart I created and in some of the parts there is a swept feature. In other configurations it is suppressed.
The issue is that the 3D sketch for the sweep gets broken going to/from the configuration. The path is generated from an extruded cut that is also supressed.
I tried to recreate the sweep using a different sketch, but that wasn't successfull.
Is this a bug or is there a different aproach I can use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It sounds you need the 3D sketch available after some other features (extruded cut, sweep) suppressed?
I’m thinking it depends on how the sketch was generated. Without looking into the model, it’s hard to say where the problem is. Could you post the dataset or more information that may help me reproduce this problem here? You can also send it to me via email (lixiongDOTxuATautodeskDOTcom)
I did a similar trick, but I must have missed a constraint becaus my projected sketch went haywire. So After I get a chance to to figure out where I went wrong, I'll do a write up later today, and post it here for posterity.
I found my error, when I was selecting the path I had selected an edge, not the curve.
This demo shows a simplified version of what the solution is:
#1 when selecting a path for a sweep that will be suppressed use a curve instead of an edge.
#2 Make sure the sketch of the curve is visible before begining.
Glad to see you have figured it out. It's a little tricky as the edge is easier to be selected than the curve.
