  1. Create the planar cross-section curves needed to define the surface. Optionally, create one or more path curves to control the sweep of the surface through the curves.

    Curves (Geometric Construction Palette Dialog Box)

  2. Click SurfBySweeping on the Geometric Construction Palette.

  3. Select the cross-section curves in order.

  4. Optionally, click , and select the path curves.

    A preview of the surface displays.

  5. If the cross-section surfaces are closed, select the capping surfaces to add.

  6. Click Continue.

    Temporary geometry displays in the graphic view and as SurfBySweeping in the Geometric Construction Explorer.

  7. If needed, create additional geometric constructions.

  8. Click Close to return to the main command ribbon.

The geometric constructions are not created and saved to the model until you click Finish on the main command ribbon to create the model object.
