Sweep Real Faces, Time Problem !!!
Why is the "Sweep Real Faces" command using perpendicular draft (extended type), under a certain angle, so slow in operations? We tried to sweep a circular face along 13 different successive real edges (in order to construct an artery) and after the third sweep operation I had to wait for hours to achieve the result. We would say that the calculation time increased with the power law in these successive sweep operations. Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance,
