Hi @MagRiz

 

 

 

for Different Cross Sections (Multiple Sectrions) along a Sweep the path must be Tangent Continous, what is not given for Your path.

So is it possible to create a filled for the corner or should it be as drawn?

 

A sharp edge within the path only is possible for a single constant section

Wolfgang

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

PS.: for Sweeping feature only one closed profile is allowed so You can not create the wall thickness in one step together with the sweep.

But I have seen, that You have a constant wall thickness of 4.5mm so just create a Thinwall Feature afterwards!

@hawcad

Thanks thats perfect. the problem was that i didnt have a fillet. i assumed it would apply an appropriate bend.

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

welcome, and as said, sharp corner only works for one section, but not for multiple.
