    Sweep Won't Work

    Someone please tell me why this sweep won't work. I'm trying to create a light fixture. This is the glass lense. The screen shot shows the profile, and the sweep path (highlighted in yellow).

    If I make just a simple rectangle, it sweeps fine. So my next question would be how would I make this lens shape?

    Hi dzatto.

    It would probably be easier to combine an extrusion with a blend - The sweep breaks because it not really a swept form, and is likely to be intersecting it self.

    PS. The top of the blend is NOT a circle

      Thanks Munkholm. I figured it was intersecting itself but couldn't figure out how to create it otherwise. Thanks for the tip. :beer:
