I’m new to shapr3d, I have searched the tutorials and the forums for something close but haven’t found anything.
I’m trying to create a hanger that has x,y, and z axis angles to it. My plan was to sketch and create a sweep. is there a way of creating a sketch that is connected together on all three planes? Basically a single line that connects on x,y,z axis? I can’t seem to figure out a way to do that… maybe it’s not possible…
This is another great solution. Thanks @TigerMike.
However, I deliberately created the square profile just to demonstrate a completely different method that some might not have thought of.
I often use this approach to create cylinders and spheres in-situ where they would normally be difficult to position or align with other models or where tight bends won’t permit the use of the sweep tool.
Here is a rather unlikely scenario but one where I found my method a little quicker and easier than the standard method of creating guide to sweep a circle…
In fact, using the sweep method, I wasn’t able to sweep around the tight bend between the middle rectangle and the cylinder. However, with my method I was easily able to ‘form’ the pipe in the corner between the two.
