Cut-sweep using a tool body and path
Used for end mill simulation. The ability to control twist & path alignment should be included.
Completely agree with this idea. It would be very usefull especially for the cutting tool design and modelling of the exit area of the cutting tool on the blank. Currently it is not possible to continuously model the flute exit on the shank side of the drill or mill. I suggest the command should be capable of sweeping and twisting any body (also with the G0 connection between surfaces) along any G1 or G2 continuos path.It would be great improvement of the Inventor design capabilities.
This kind of ties in the the request for Sweep with twist, AutoCAD does it, the ASM kernel does it, it just isn't exposed to Inventor
