    Hi there, this is one of those things that can seem a bit trickier at first than it actually is. One way to achieve a rounded tip is to create a loft between a base profile and a point. By default, this will not be rounded, but adjusting the second end condition to be tangent to profile will achieve the desired result. Adjusting the end magnitude will change the size of the rounding. Please note that it is important for the point to be in a plane which is parallel to the base sketch. This can be accomplished using a plane offset at a distance, or a plane parallel to another through a point as demonstrated in this part studio.


    Hope that helps!
