- [Instructor] Now that everything's flexing correctly,…I can go ahead and model my geometry.…On the Create tab, I'm gonna make a sweep.…Under the Work Plane panel, click Set.…And under Name it, via the dropdown,…because I named our reference planes,…I could pick these as hosted items.…I'll pick the Mounting height work plane…to make sure that this sweep moves up or down…as I change the elevation of the mounting height.…Click on the Modify Sweep tab…and click Sketch Path.…
Here we can edit the path that our sweep…is going to be drawn with.…Use the Pick Lines tool,…and make sure to check box Lock,…and pick the left reference plane that we've drawn,…as well as the right reference plane.…Now, using the line tool,…we can offset one and a half inches…and draw from the intersection of…the two reference planes, from left to right,…making sure that the line is above…the reference plane line of our drawing location.…
I'm gonna use the Trim tool to trim our lines.…And I'll select the left and right line…and edit their endpoint to intersect…
