Swept Cut Assembly Features

You can create profile swept cut features in assemblies. As with other assembly features, you can propagate swept cut features to the parts they affect.

You cannot create solid swept cut features in assemblies.
When creating a Swept Cut as an assembly feature:
  • For Profile PM_profiles.gif, the sketch you select must be in the top level of the assembly.
  • For Path PM_path.gif and Guide Curves PM_guide_curves_sweep.gif, you can select the following:
    • Sketches or curves in the top level of the assembly.
    • Edges of components at any level of the assembly.

You can create patterns of swept cut assembly features. Linear, circular, table driven, and sketch driven patterns are supported.

Click Assembly Features (Assembly tab on the CommandManager) and click Swept Cut , or click Insert > Assembly Feature > Cut > Sweep .
