Hi everybody,

I want to sweep a Vertex (V) along a wire. For this I am using BRepOffsetAPI_MakePipe. The resulting wire is created, but it is located at the wrong position; V is not lying on the wire.
Can anybody help me?

P.S: In my special case the wire is actually a line.

Hello Andreas,

Wouldn't resulting wire equal to your spin wire (one you sweep along) ?
Anyway, frankly, I don't see a reason to sweep a vertex, you could construct your results in a more simple way.
