iLogic Tutorial Three – Yet more profile creation
The final two dimensions for this sketch are the radius of the lower ac, and the overall reveal as shown below. The radius is .25 and the reveal is .75. and the sketch should be fully constrained. Right click in the graphics window and choose Finish Sketch. Save the file.
Now turn the visibility of the Edge Path sketch back on, and grab the Sweep tool from the Create Panel. More than likely, the program will try to select the larger profile of the Edge Path sketch, make sure you select the profile you just created. It should look like the image below…
…notice that the right stile solid body will be selected for participation in the procedure as can be seen by the dashed magenta lines. The Path selector should now be active, so select the Edge Path sketch. You should get a green preview of the profile following the path all the way around the part, and the right stile should be selected as the only solid body participating in the operation. We need to change this. if you hover your cursor over the vertical row of four buttons down the center of the dialog box, click the one that says Cut (second one from top). It should change the green preview to red, indicating a cut operation.
The Solids selector should now be active. You now need to add both rails and the other stile to the selection set. it should look like the image below. If so, click OK to accept the settings and create the sweep.
