Using end conditions within the loft command

tim_waldemertim_waldemer Member Posts: 10 ✭✭
Is there a way to get the surface loft commend to use both end conditions and guide rails at the same time, or am I missing the boat on this one?

    @tim_waldemer - great question and a very common one. No you cannot use end conditions AND guide curves. The reason is that they would conflict. You would be asking the loft to satisfy both an end condition (e.g. Curvature continuous) and at the same time follow a guide curve (which wouldn't be curvature continuous). It's not possible to satisfy both. I hope this helps you.

    @tim_waldemer Are you perchance trying to describe a center-line loft with end conditions? Those are possible (but not currently supported). If that is what you are looking for, please submit an enhancement request :)

    If can be a center line loft (like for a mirror symmetrical loft), or just lofting up to any plane or surface edge really.  I will submit an enhancement request.  Thanks!
