    Recreational Slide

    I figured this would be easy, but then I remembered the headache of my curved sloping wall. How would one go about creating a slide with a curve at the bottom. I created a mass family, got the shape and slope, inserted said mass family into my drawing then used it for the path of a sweep. However, the sweep at the curved part (and beyond) doesn't slope with the curve and the end of the slide is now at an angle instead of parallel to the ground plane.

    What's the easiest way to accomplish this?

    A Swept Blend should get you closer.

    (I did start hacking at an adaptive sweep, but I never have much fun getting flat-faced orientations on the host points for my profiles, so an in-place will have to suffice)

    Try a railing with the sloped path:

    I tried doing a sweep blend but I kept getting the error that I could only use one sketch line as a path. I picked the 3D edge of my mass family, one on the sloped part and one on the curved part (I couldn't do them both as one). So how did you get two sketch lines?

    The railing hack is interesting. I need to try that out.

    Took me a second to figure it out but the railing worked good enough for my needs and it's pretty simple once you get the steps down. Thanks Nurlan!

    I used two swept blends, one for the arc and another for the straight run. The railing creates too many lines on the arc segment for my liking though I did consider it first.

    I noticed that as well, but I'm past it for now. lol
    Okay, two sweep blends. So you're forcing the "end" profile to be level and that's how you're getting around it?

    The arc swept blend path is "flat" and uses the same profile but one is higher so the form blends "up" to the upper portion. The start is perpendicular to the ground and so is the end. If you want the shape to have a different angle to the ground at the ends a void could carve that off or you could use a void swept blend "host" form to allow a sweep to follow the 3d path it creates (using Pick 3D to define the path).

    One bend slide? That's too easy. I did this for a residential client, for inside their entry....
