Swept Body Cutout


I am trying to use a "Solid Sweep" in the attached document.  I've added a body with the tool I want to act as the cutting mechanism but solid edge just keeps throwing me unknown errors without further direction.  There also doesn't seem to be alot of videos on Youtube on the subject.


can someone spare a second to have a look at this?

Hi @JordanMcB,


Try expanding the "Design Bodies" collector, and right click to "Activate" back to the primary body....then the Solid Sweep tool will function as expected. 


Also...if you don't already know, make sure to check the "PromptBar" at the bottom of the screen [is dockable, so can be anywhere, really] for what Solid Edge is looking for next.
