Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at solid sweeps, part of SOLIDWORKS Tips & Tricks.
- [Narrator] For this week's tip, I'm going…to be talking about a solid sweep.…And a solid sweep is one of those things…that's been inside of SOLIDWORKS for quite a while,…but it's kind of underutilized…and not well known about.…So I want to kind of show you…what is the difference between a regular sweep…and a solid sweep.…So to get started, let's do a regular sweep.…So let's go up to Swept Cut.…And I'm going to choose a sketch profile for the type.…And I'm gonna use the profile…and use this little circle here that I predefined…as the sketch profile.…And as far as the path, I'm going to use…this line right there.…
Pretty straightforward, click on OK…and you can see what it does.…It just created a little swept cut into there…with a flat-bottomed hole.…Now, if I want to create a solid sweep,…I need a few more ingredients.…So the first thing I want to do is click…on this top surface and start a sketch.…I'm gonna start a circle right there…at that endpoint, define its size…as the same size as this other circle,…make them equal.…
