Why is an option not allowed?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

 

I am in the process of modeling a spring in Solidworks 2008. My question is why should I not have the option to use Swept Boss Base after I exit a sketch? What is the principle involved here. The option is greyed out. Is there something else I must do. I have made this spring many times before and cannot remember having this problem.

 

 

Thank you in advance,

Andrew Gotchofsky

Do you have two sketches? One for the path and one for the profile.

Do you have two separate sketches. The path and profile cannot be in the same sketch.

I have two separate sketches. After I exit the second sketch, (profile), is when I need the option to select Swept Boss Base,

and it is at this point that I do not have the option.
