Full Version: Sweep Question

From: nameless

Hey team! I hope all of you are doing great!

I was wondering- is there a way to have the profile geometric center to be transferred on the rail before performing the sweep? Sometimes I find that I just want to point to a rail and have my shape sweep on it without keeping the offset between them and having to relocate the profile takes time in some cases.

I might be missing something here, a simpler option.

"To enable auto-place mode make sure the profiles are positioned outside of the bounding box around the rail curve"

Hm, there is an existing functionality for this. I might have answered my own question by simply looking at the docs :))

Hi nameless, I'm glad you got it figured out!

I think the current way to trigger auto place mode is too hidden, I would like to move it to a more visible option at some point.

Hey Michael,
The ability or option to select the attachment point when using autoplace would be a noice addition…

Thanks Michael! Yes that would be great. I also agree with Burr, sweep is such an awesome function, becomes bread and butter for some situations.

Have a beautiful day!
