How to make a hollow sweep?

Postby falviani » Sun May 17, 2020 2:16 pm


My setup:
OS: Windows 10 (10.0)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.21068 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 92fe9adebbff910c5a10d6230785a6b58935b677

I am trying to make a simple nozzle as part of a CNC dust boot. I have attached the file in its current state. I want the sweep to be hollow, but I can't figure out any setting that will do that. Can anybody help? Although I would like to have the free end of the sweep to be slightly different, I'll settle on trying to edit the end sketch after I can get the sweep behaving as I'd like.

Thanks in advance,

Not a Path related question. Moving to a more appropriate section

Just add the inner circle to the sweep profile sketch. Part Design can do that.
