Swept Cut command in Solidworks is very special command that you can do your eccentiric cutting operations through a 3D geometry in Solidworks. You can obtain geometries like 3D geometries that have very specific channels are carved inside that with Swept Cut command in Solidworks. But you need to prepare very good sketch and contour to complete Swept Cut operation in Solidworks succesfully.
With this article you will be aware of how to use Swept Cut command in Solidworks and how to use various features of Swept Cut command in Solidworks. Also you will learn what kinds of geometries could be obtained by using Swept Cut in Solidworks.

Consider about a situation that you want to carve a circular hole that have a path like blue path above in a 3D geometry by using Swept Cut command in Solidworks.
You need to open the Swept Cut command as shown by red arrow above to carve the geometry in Solidworks.
After the opening of Swept Cut command in Solidworks, the path must be selected as shown by red arrow above and the profile must be selected as shown by green arrow.
But you can also select Circular Profile as shown by green arrow above that you can select only an path than enter a diameter value to Swept Cut the geometry.
Also you can select extra guide curves that traces the same path with main path, which are give other specific shapes to your cutting opeation with Swept Cut operation in Solidworks.
As you can see above, if you select thin feature shown in green box in Sweep Cut, the craved geometry will be as shown by green arrows above.
You can select a curvature display such as Mesh Preview, Zebra Stripes, Curvature Combs option to observe the curvature of your obtained 3D geometry after the Swept-Cut operation.
After you finished your Swept Cut operation options, you need to click on green yes button as shown by green arrow above to complete Swept Cut operation in Solidworks.
As you can see from the section view of our carved geometry, Swept Cut command worked very well in Solidworks.
