SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Cosmetic Bottle Tutorial

Cosmetic Bottle three configs


Cosmetic Bottle: This multi-body model demonstrates the use of guide curve driven sweep to create three unique shapes. The three bottle shapes might look like three separate parts using lofts but in reality are three configurations using just one sweep. The sweep uses a simple elliptical profile that is controlled by two guide curves. The guide curves use “style spines” to more accurately control the geometry with dimensions versus drag handles. Download this file to learn more about sweeps with guide curves, configurations, and style splines.
