hello.

 

I have created a pipe using sweep through 2 planes and 3d sketch. I want a specific bend on that pipe to be extracted for drawing purpose. How do I do that ?

 

thanks in advance :smileyhappy:

Can you Retrieve the 2D generating sketches in the drawing?

You might have to make them visible in ipt first, I don't recall for sure.

ok. I can retrieve the 2D sketch's but how will that help me, retrieve the bend to a standalone part and putting angle dimensions on a bend part ? if you noticed the bend is bended through 2 axis.

 

I can be more specific, I must find the rotation degrees of that bend and put them on a drawing. :smileyhappy:

Could you add workplanes to your part? Then use the workplanes and the Change View Orientation tool to get the drawing view into the correct orientation.
