Swept Blend

Hello,

 

I have an extrude inside a box (like a mold). Is it possible to surround this extrude with the Swept Blend function and then remove the material around it?

I have this mold and I am trying to remove the material around it as much as I can (so I will not have a lot of wasted material). I am now trying to achieve this with the Swept Blend function, but when I am trying it, it removes only the inside material and not the one around. How can I do that?

Yes it work. It is a Creo 5 file and I haven't installed Creo 5 yet. Hopefully someone else will be able to help.

Are you talking about trying to be left with the core and cavity like in mold design?

I don't think the Swept Blend will get you what you want because you will need some trajectory and it will interpolate between sections.

Is this an assembly? Because if it's a part, why don't you turn the extrude into a cut?

You could also select the surfaces that form the extrude, copy and paste to make a quilt, and then solidify or thicken the quilt depending on your intent.
