Where Can the ADAPTIVE SWEEP Tool Be Advantageous Over SWEEP in CATIA V5?

CATIA DASSAULT SYSTEMES QUICK TIPS
The SWEEP tool within CATIA V5 is a very useful tool. However it can have its limitations. One of the limitations is that the profile curve cannot be adapted along the sweep.

The SWEEP tool within CATIA V5 is a very useful tool. However it can have its limitations. One of the limitations is that the profile curve cannot be adapted along the sweep.
