Hi all, I have created a library part using a solid sweep revolve. I would like to add a parameter to this element which will allow me to adjust the angle of the axis after it has been imported into a project. Is this possible? If so how? cadjockey

Yes of course. You would need to setup a reference plane with an angular dimension parameter on it then constrain the axis of the revolve in the sketch to this...

Hi Mr Spot, I tried to do this. It didn't seem to work. Can I confirm: Does the work plane of the revolve have a bearing on this constraint? Do I create the referance plane while I am editing the revolve and add the dimension also while in this mode? I can only see and manipulate the axis while in the edit mode. cadjockey

Mr Spot, OK I have the axis being controlled now by an angular dimension which is also a parameter I can manipulate. However, when adjusting the angle of the axis the revolve sweep changes its shape as well. Is the only way to stop this to apply dimension constraints? cadjockey

Just dimension constraints are the best way to constrain the shape.

Hi Mr Spot, Can arcs be used and constrained in a sweep revolve? I am finding that I can create a revolve in what ever shape however, when the axis is adjusted to a desired angle the arcs have a mind of their own. What I am trying to do is create the corner detail I showed in a recent thread, which is quite an organinc shape but without the radial lines. See attached. The shape you see has been successfully created using a segmented sweep however, each aris of the segments are visible. Creating a sweep revolve removes the radial lines but I loose in functionality. Any suggestions? cadjockey
