    You can't do sheet metal loft as a feature in Onshape, but you should be able to create the shape as a solid and use the sheet metal convert. 

    The trick is to get the faces on the part flat before you convert to sheet metal. In this example, I used the loft feature but then had to patch the flat chamfered corners in.
