Problem with Sweep Command


New member
I want to use Explicit/With two guide curves of sweep command, but after selecting the profile and two guide curves the swept surface doesn't start and end at the start and end points respectively.
Thanks for your time and consideration
Yours faithfully

I often see this situation when the driving geometry is too short; maybe the guide curves or the spine curve is not long enough? But I see that CATIA chose Curve.7 as the spine, which is what I suspect is causing the swept surface to be short. If the end planes are parallel, change the spine to a line (or axis) that is perpendicular to the planes.
