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:

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.

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:
