Solid sweep cutout

Hi Edgers,

I need a little bit help with Sweep Body Cutout command.


There is a known limitation with this command, when you want to use for example circle sketch wrapped to cylindrical face as trajectory.
The task is to cutout a groove or slot with the help of tool body which is guided along the wrapped sketch where the tool axis is continuously changed and positioned perpendicular to the selected cylindrical surface.


Curently I am looking for the simplest workaroud for this. I am able to WA this using quite complex surfacing and 3D curves modeling, but maybe I am missing a simpler WA.


I attached a short video and simple part for better understanding.


PS: @Imics, I am betting all I have on you :-)
