From what i can guess, seeing as you don't say what geometry you're trying to sweep, there are lines attached to projected geometry where you've drawn new lines on top.
So inventor is giving you the correct warning, check your geometry around the projected bits and see if they are attached to the path you want to sweep.

Hi InventorInSchool,

 

Are you attempting to sweep Sketch15 along Sketch2 as a surface?

 

Aside, I noticed that the part was made in an older version of Inventor 2013, have you installed Service Pack 2 and its Update 3?

 

Thanks,

Indy

Hello! I want whole model to become sweeped into surfaces, but yes, I want to sweep Sketch15 along Sketch2 as a surface.

 

Hm.. I'm using Autodesk Inventor Professional 2013 at my school so I'm not sure :/

Hi!

 

You want the tube all around, rigth? But you need sharp edges? You can't use sweep in a path with sharp corners, you have to round the rectangule.

 

Remember that you can also build a surface using the "extrude comand".

 

Also you're doing so much work to build a simple thing, check the attached part, you can use Pattern and mirror tools to fast forward your model.

 

Tip: In the vertical tubes, you only need to create one, then use pattern to do the others, and mirror to copy all to the other side.

Ok, i'll try this again since a previous post didn't go through...

What i could see in your sketch was that some lines are attached to reference geometry instead of to eachother, creating the so called "discontinues segments".
So inventor is giving a correct error message.
You'll have to edit your sketch and make sure your path is connected correctly.

Hi Carlos, InventorInSchool,

 

It's possible to get the sharp corners by sweeping as a solid and then offsetting by 0mm, hopefully you can see what I mean in the attached part.

 

Also, Carlos makes some good suggestions on how to reduce the amount of work you're doing in the part!

 

Best wishes,

Indy
