Create a new solid or add to an existing solid by driving a 2D sketch along a spine. (To remove solid material, see Drive Remove.)
Important: Drives created by New > Drive will be considered independent objects. Those created by Add > Drive will be added to the active object. (If only one object exists in the file it is automatically active unless manually deactivated.) See Activate / Deactivate and Activating Objects.
Required Step 1
- If you enter Drive immediately after creating a closed 2D composite curve or sketch, the entity is automatically included in Step 1.
- If you select a sketch that contains more than one closed curve sequence, all closed curve sequences will be driven. In order for a sketch to be selected, however, it must contain only closed curve sequences.
Required Step 2
There are two options for setting the section orientation:
Optional Step 1
Pick a constraint plane to constrain the section, if required.
Optional Step 2
Change the active object (temporarily).
When you have completed the steps, press OK or Apply in the Feature Guide to complete the function.
