Degree 1 Loft (straight sections) through n Line like Curves

I noticed that it's not possible to create a ruled, straight surface loft between, say, 10 line curves to create a single surface object. Only by repeating the lodt command several times.

Is this a known limitation? Eventually I would liek to reproduce such objects in featurescript. The option from featurescript may be to do the operation as above anyway, and have all those repeated steps hidden if it can't be done in a single Loft operation.

    Not sure I understand what you're looking for. Do you have an example document you could link? Are you trying to do something like this?

    I think I get what you're after, and I've considered writing a feature to do it. Something like this, right?

    Yeah @Evan_Reese that's the jist,  my case would be simpler, because it'd just be straight lines as the prifles (whereas you have these curved ones, to make a more stylish set of surfaces that are kinda trivial for in a surface modelling package.

    In any case, Onshape would treat it as a set of disjoint surfaces, I appreciate.
