Sweep creates single surfaces


Whenever I sweep a closed polyline it creates a single surface. Now I have to sweet individual curves & then join them. Can you put in a “split at tangents” option like you have with revolve and extrude crv? This really interrupts my workflow.



HI @tcroshaw,

i´m asuming you´re using the closed polyline as profile in Sweep1 or Sweep2. You may control the behaviour globally beforehand by entering _CreaseSplitting. If it is set to No, the result is a single surface, once set to Yes it will result in individual surfaces, eg. a hexagon profile will result in six surfaces.

The global crease splitting affects other commands too. If you do not want this, you can reset it to Yes or use the command _DivideAlongCreases _SplitAtTangets=_Yes on a single surface…


Thanks Clement.
