Is There a Method to Loft/Extrude to a Single Edge?

Not sure how to tile this thread but am messing with some lofting and would love to get rid of the top sketch in this model and shape to a single upper edge. Is it possible?

    Howdy.

    I suggest you use a single vertex at the top in place of the sketch you wish to eliminate, and guides to get the profile you want.

    SWEET!! You have no idea how long I wrestled with that - worked a treat thanks so much!!

    WITH THE VERTEX COINCIDENT WITH THE GUIDES IT ALL MOVES PERFECTLY - caps sorry

    Cool, glad it helped.

    As an extra thought you can set up the guides as splines then if you click the final button in the guide sketch you can move the drag handles on the splines and see the effect on the final part in real time. 😀
