Creating a sweep feature with model edges

In the previous movie we learned how to create a sweep from scratch, from a blank file. In this video we're going to look at how to use the sweep within the context of a part file. On the screen you can see a basic oil pan shape that I created and we're going to just use this model as a way to create a sweep that follows along the lip of this oil pan. I've created a work plane here, Work Plane1, that runs right through the center of the part. And I'm going to use that plane as my sketch plane and what we're going to do is create a little lip that we can sweep all the way around this edge.

To begin, I'll select the work plane and use the heads-up display to create a sketch. We've rotated into the normal view for the sketch, and you can see we have geometry in our way. If you remember from some of the previous videos, we can right-click in the graphics window and select Slice Graphics to help make this more visible. F7 on your keyboard will also do the same. What this does is te...
