You can take any number of Profils and any number of Rails!
So a double sweep seems possible! :)
But maybe i don't understand what is a "double sweep" so an image of result wished can be help!

In Rhino they term it Sweep 2. There you select to rails and any number of sweeps. When I used to use Amapi it was called a Gordon surfacing tool I think!

Better illustration of what I am doing. For future reference, technically which are the rails and which are the profiles?
See new attachment.

Hi Mike, usually the long vertical ones would be used as the rails.

> In Rhino they term it Sweep 2

It sounds like you've got it figured out already, but just in case - in MoI both of Rhino's "Sweep1" and "Sweep2" commands are combined in a single Sweep command, which will do a "Sweep1" if you select just one rail at the rail picking stage, or "Sweep2" if you select 2 rails at the rail picking stage. If you select 3 or more rails MoI will do a sweep1 along each of them.

You can also use Construct > Network on a curve setup like that as well.

But they are interchangeable if Rails < 3 & Profiles < 3! :)
So not here! 5 & 2 !

Hi Pilou, they aren't interchangeable for the sweep command, because you can have either one or two rails for the sweep command, and any number of profiles. So in that case where there are 5 curves in that one direction, those have to be the profiles not the rails.
