Hi.
I'm having the problem that I can't activate inflation layers on my mesh, when I'm using sweep method. Anybody know how to get around this?

Thanks

Right click the Method and selct "Inflate this method". Then you select the edge you want to inflate from, rather than the face which is normally what you do.

It requires that you select the source face for sweeping first

Yea, sweeping is a little different than the other methods because it is really inflating on the perimeter of the source face and then sweeping...
