Controlling the Tangency Direction

You can flip the tangency direction of certain curved sketch entities. This includes arcs and splines.

To control the tangency direction:

  1. Open system_dir:\Users\Public\Public Documents\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS 2018\samples\whatsnew\sketching\Block.sldprt.
  2. In the FeatureManager design tree, under Cut-Extrude1, right-click Sketch3 and click Edit Sketch .

  3. In the graphics area, right-click the arc and click Reverse Endpoint Tangent on the shortcut menu.

    The software reverses the tangency and flips the arc.
  4. Click Edit > Rebuild.
