Summary: Swept Surface


As it turns out my example and my attempt to explain my problem were both
pretty bad. Thanks to those who replied and we're able to read my mind and
figure out the problem. My salvation was the variable section sweep and
the x-trajectory. What I wanted to model was how the angle of a tool
relative to a rotating piece of stock would effect the finished piece.

I was going to make a summary with some pics to illustrate the solution but
that would probably be just as confusing. So I'm passing along this
mock-up part that will hopefully give everyone that is not familiar with
VSSs a little insight as to how they work.

Many thanks to everyone that replied,
Sam
