How to make a sketch "follow" a curved face or how to make a face follow a curve?

    Hi @gabriel_canto333,

    There are a few different ways to get organic shapes. If it is extruded along a curve, use the Sweep feature. If you need a more organic shape, you will need to use Loft, Fill, or Boundary surface.
