OTHER PROTRUSION OPTIONS
The
Extrude
and
Revolve
options available in the
SOLID OPTS
menu were discussed inChapter 3, and the
Sweep
and
Blend
options are discussed in this chapter. As mentionedearlier, Protrusion
 
and Cut
 
are the two basic options available in Pro/ENGINEER that are usedto create a feature.
NoteNoteNoteNoteNote
All the options that are available for creating a cut are similar to those that are available forcreating a protrusion. Remember, that a cut is performed on an existing feature and therefore,the Cut option is available only when at least a base feature exists on the graphics screen.
In the next section you will learn about both protrusion and cut sweeps.
SWEEP
The
Sweep
option extrudes a section along a defined trajectory. The order of operation is tofirst create a trajectory and then a section. Trajectory is a path along which a section is swept.The trajectory for a sweep feature can be either sketched or selected. The
Sweep
option of protrusion is similar to the
Extrude
option, the only difference being that in the case of the
Extrude
option the feature is extruded in the direction normal to the sketching plane, but inthe case of the
Sweep
option the section is swept along the sketched or selected trajectory. Thetrajectory can be open or closed. Normal sketching tools are used for sketching the trajectory.The cross section of the swept feature remains constant throughout the sweep.
Note
Some important points to remember while drawing a trajectory and asection for a sweep feature are discussed later in this chapter.
Sweep > Solid
The
Sweep
option can be used for adding material as well as for removingmaterial, that is, for protrusion as well as for cut features. In the
Sweep
>
Solid
option that is discussed here, material defined by the section isadded in the specified path. Figure 7-1 shows the

. You canalso choose the
Sweep
option from the menu bar. Choose
Insert 
menufrom the menu bar; various options are displayed in this menu. Choose
Protrusion

Sweep
. The
SWEEP TRAJ
menu appears. Similarly, whenyou choose the
Done
option in the
SOLID OPTS
menu, the
SWEEPTRAJ
menu is displayed as shown in Figure 7-2. The options in thismenu are discussed next.
Sketch Traj
The
Sketch Traj
option is used when you want to sketch the trajectoryfor the sweep feature. This is the most commonly used option for definingthe trajectory. The trajectory can be open or closed. There are somelimitations for using closed or open trajectory with closed or open section.

These limitations are discussed in the next section. When you choose the
Sketch Traj
option,you are prompted to select a sketching plane. The sketching plane you select will be parallel tothe screen when you sketch the trajectory. Figure 7-3 shows how the section is swept along thesketched trajectory, and Figure 7-4 shows the shaded image of the swept feature.The following points specify the combinations of trajectories andsections that are possible/not possible to create.1. Open section and open trajectory are not possible.2. Closed section and open trajectory are possible.3. If the sketched trajectory is a closed loop then the
ATTRIBUTES
menu is displayed as shown in Figure 7-5.There are two options that are available:
Add Inn Fcs
(Addinner faces) and
No Inn Fcs
(No inner faces).For
Add Inn Fcs
, only open sections are possible, as shown in Figure 7-6. The shadedimage of the corresponding swept feature is shown in Figure 7-7. The two figures belowexplain the
Add Inn Fcs
option.
