Sweep Geometry
Mitered Corners
The sweep will have a mitered corner if the trajectory has straight line segments that form an angle.
Sweep with Mitered Corner
1. Angles in sweep trajectories create sweep corners
Non-Tangent Trajectory Segments
Sweeps can be made along trajectories consisting of non-tangent entities. However, as the section is swept along, the resulting geometry should not have any gaps. This is shown in the following illustration.
