if you need a progresive profil , only 2 sketch are inough +1path (red one)
if you are more section you need one at the beginning, one on middle , one at the end , and one path of each
to create the intermediate draw it on XY plan (for example) and change placement with the appropriate angle (gold)
The point of the 10 planes is to control the progression. 3/4 of the ring should be the same thickness, and then it begins to widen out.
If you look at the original.
I have modified the cross section of one of the sketches. Essentially what you have in the first sweep is what I need, except I need a bunch more sketches, and they need to be shaped like the one I did (a comfort ring profile). More importantly, how can I control the "rotation" of the sketch?
So for starters I have modified one sketch. I need 4 copies of it along the curve and the other sketches being non incurvate..
So I have accomplished part of this. hie everything other than sweep mirror 1, There are two end points, now I want to take the sketch under the first sweep, copy it 3 times and place them on the curve.
Basically Jolie_4 is what I want, but I want to have essentially about 4 copies of sketch and 4 copies of Sketch002, placed approximately equal spacing around the ring. Then I can go tweak the outlines to get the curve I want.
Eventually, I'll want to re-do the sketches with cubic splines. When you enable both sweeps, you will notice at the thing part of the ring, it starts diverging. About where I drew sketch 6 is where I want to to start diverging outward. The think I will then need to know, is how I can move the sketches back and forth along the sweep to tweak the profile the way I really want it to be tweaked.
