:confused:

I wonder whether the friends of the forum here has the same problems as I do.


Figure 1


I wonder why when I use the tool sweep with two faces selected in diagonal appears that message and if there is any plugin to correct this.


Figure 2


Here in this example in increasing order, beginning with a simple an object (1) where select multiple faces around this cylinder the tool sweep. Is there any plugin allowing sweep on separate sides of the faces group of them all? Me save much time, why not need to select each side and then use the sweep...


Figure 3


As I leave this figure always in the "zero"?


Thanks!:rolleyes:

I can confirm that in 7.51 "Model" Side your first case of selecting faces diagonal to each other and selecting "sweep" or "sweep tip" will generate that error. It works perfectly on workSpace side.

Your "Figure three" question of .500 is the amount to sweep, .250 would sweep half as much on the z axis. so "0" would do nothing.

I think your other question was if there is a way to select a group of faces without having to select them individualy each time?

It would select the side and have the option to make a extrude by region or individual faces, such as in Blender.


How to do that?


Thanks!

in the first figure, you could sweep each of thos faces individually, but not together. If you try to sweep two adjacent faces it will sweep them and they will remain joined at the common edge. If you sweel them separately, you get a different result - see picture below. In your diagonal case, I think it is not sure how to treat the maths because of only being joined at one point and so it refuses.


For your second image - this is a similar issue. If you want to go from 1 to 2 in your picture, select all the faces and sweep together. If you want to go from 1 to 3 you cannot select adjacent faces. I've done this in two steps by slecting alternate faces, or you could do it a face at a time (slow!)


Third image - note that the z distance is not in the world co-ordinates, it is relative to the selected face, i.e perpendicular to the face.


Hope that makes sense...

I want to thank you who gave me the attention on those doubts, but for which I have read here and tried to do, I think it is not doing sweep in a group of faces without leaves them together ... With the Truespace such an option would be much more agile! I want to make this request to be added in the program, because many here believe that the forum has felt no such option!

As the image 3, I think not explained well what I want. Suppose I have a cylinder with twelve sides and I want to make a extrude in some face. But I do not want to face need to move because it is aligned with the other face. To make the move without extrude the face, I have to press the right mouse button on top of the tool and put sweep zero coodinate Z in the entire time I want to face not move. If my model has perhaps 50 faces, I have a great and slow job for make...


It is there another request!


What think?


A hug!;)
