In this course you'll use profiles and paths to get started with sweeps, but then add more powerful options like guide curves and start and end tangency. Explore the sweep command and see what you can do! Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2017.
There are many ways to create swoopy parts in SOLIDWORKS and the sweep command is one of the more popular ones. In this course, SOLIDWORKS Essentials â€“ In-depth Sweeps, you'll start with just a sketch, a profile, and a path and move onto guide curves and other advanced options. First, you're going to start with the simple aspects of the sweep command, but then explore all of the options for the command. Next, you'll see examples of different uses of the options and see how guide curves, start and end tangency can help us obtain the geometry that we may want. Finally, you'll learn how solid sweeps can work as well and bi-direction sweep options. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of all the different types of options inside the sweep command. Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2017.
