Requirements: o Path: The direction of “extrude”. Mostly in a non-linear fashion. o Profile: The cross section of the part Rules: o Path must never self intersect. o Sweep must never self intersect—Overlapping geometry (pg. 325). o Sketch plane and sweep path must intersect at a single point. 3-D Sweeps: A 3-D Sweep uses a sweep path made up of multiple sketches that are on separate planes or faces. For this type of sweep you may have to use the Pierce constraint rather than the Coincident constraint. Composite Curve Create a single 3D sweep path from multiple sketches.
