A couple months ago I posted a blog on the differences between a solid sweep and a swept thin (http://blog.cati.com/2011/05/sweep-solid-vs-sweep-thin.html).
There is a work around to create a swept thin. Surface sweep is the answer.
Note: For all these examples, the “pink” sketch will be used as the path, the “green” as the profile.
So, just as before, this is the shape we are after.
