Example of Loft - Merge Tangent Faces

Select Merge tangent faces to cause the corresponding surfaces in the resulting loft to be tangent if the corresponding lofting segments are tangent. Faces that can be represented as a plane, cylinder, or cone are maintained. Other adjacent faces are merged, and the sections are approximated. Sketch arcs may be converted to splines.
