In this video, learn how to make a composite curve made up of several other existing curves or lines.
- [Instructor] Walking through the various curves…that we can create,…let's now take a look at the composite curve.…This is, simply put, a composite of a number of edges…that you select.…If I go over to this model that I've got here…and I just start selecting some edges that are all touching.…I'm holding down control when I do this.…I can go up here, go to insert, curve, and select composite.…
You can see here that the window is already populated…with my selection for composite curve.…Go ahead and hit the green check mark…and I've created a curve there.…It's basically a 3D sketch,…but it's combined to be one continuous thing.…Now, if I go to this point and create a plane,…I can make a sketch there.…If this circle is coincident with that composite,…we should be able to use it to make a sweep.…
I'm going to make a swept cut choosing this profile…and then I'm going to go to the drop-down menu here…and select the composite curve for the path.…You can see, that follows that all the way around the part…and makes that cut.…
