V5 Adaptive Sweep

V5 Adaptive Sweep

V5 Adaptive Sweep

Hi Friends
          Can any one tell me how to take the section in adaptive sweep perpendicular to any given global vector...This can be done in I-deas through variational Sweep....
The final result of such an operation can be obtained by other methods but does adaptive sweep permits such an operation...

RE: V5 Adaptive Sweep


can you send me a picture or a file of what you need, i guess you want to controle the normal of the profil in adaptive sweep but what you really want to do ?

Have fun,



RE: V5 Adaptive Sweep

Hey Eric
        my doubt is very simple..i need not send any pics for dat....its not what u r thinking...in adaptive sweep the section plane based on the points where the cross-section has to be changed comes by default...we cannot control the orientation of this section plane...as far as i know.....if it is possible,please through some light on it....
        what i mean to say is : can we control the orientation of the section plane in adaptive sweep with respect to some global vector....
