swept features in 3 planes?


New member
The tutorial on swept features in Solid Edge V20 (academic) shows how to create a swept part through 2 planes. Is it possible to create a swept part using all 3 planes? If so, is there a tutorial?

Start by create the path of the Sweep.

Then create a sketch on plane perpendicular to a curve to position three plane along the parth, this will allow you to create the three profiles you need.

When you will start the Sweep, in the option use "Multiple path and cross section"
