Making a Gothic arch

Let's continue with our gothic arch. In the previous movie we took our seed family and reconfigured it to make the framework that we needed for the gothic arch. And the essential framework here is this triangular form that is created from two reference lines, that have been locked and constrained to the corresponding reference planes. Now we're going to use each of these reference lines as the spring line for basically two angled, segmental arches. And I'll do that all inside of a single sweep object.

So I'm going to go to the Create Panel, click on the Sweep button, and sketch my path. I'll use the start end radius arc. And I'm going to snap right to the endpoint of this reference line. And then the opposite endpoint over here. And then I'm just going to pull that arch out just a little bit, like so. I'm going to cancel out of the command. Now the reason I want to cancel out of the command is, I want the arch on both sides to be exactly the same. So the easiest way to do...
