Trying to loft profile.

john_faracijohn_faraci Member Posts: 10
I have been trying to loft profile sketch 9 to profile sketch 10. I obviously am new at lofting and need some help. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am guessing I need a guide or a path but really have no idea how to add them. 

Thank you in advance.

    John, I would recommend using the 3d spline feature to create guide curves between profiles. In general, you should keep the number of vertices on the start and end profiles as similar as possible. Guide curves can help in cases where you have differing number of vertices and you want more control over the curvature.

    Here is my quick attempt: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/7a642d40ffd8a70df721a756/w/0b9b7145c9e10e23e70d1142/e/3f4af29af98866ab9342b2e8

    Thank you Tim, that is perfect. How can I view the results where I can roll back the features to see step by step?

    Thank you again.

    Glad I could help! Sorry about that, I forgot to make the doc public. You can try again now. Simply grab the grey horizontal bar below all of the features and drag it up higher in the featuretree.
