In the conceptual design environment, a sweep is created from a 2D profile that is swept along a path. The profile consists of linework drawn perpendicular to the line or series of lines that define the path. You create a sweep by selecting the profile and the path, and then clicking Create Form.
Multi-segmented paths can be used to create a sweep if the profile is formed from closed loops. If the profile is not closed, it does not sweep along a multi-segment path. If the path is a single-line segment, use an open profile to create the sweep.
Note: If you are creating a component family using a template other than a massing or adaptive component template, see Creating a Sweep.
