Loft with Split Line

To create a loft using a split line:

  1. Use a split line to create a non-planar profile on a model face.

For example, create a circle on a plane, then project the circle onto a non-planar face.

  1. Set up the planes needed for the profile sketches. Use existing planes, or create new planes. The planes do not have to be parallel.

  2. Sketch the profiles.

For example, sketch a point on plane 4.

You can create a loft to a point, even if the point is part of a sketch containing other sketch entities.

  1. Click one of the following:

    • Lofted Boss/Base on the Features toolbar or Insert, Boss/Base, Loft

    • Lofted Cut on the Features toolbar or Insert, Cut, Loft

    • Lofted Surface on the Surfaces toolbar or Insert, Surface, Loft

  1. In the PropertyManager:

    • Select the Profiles to loft in the graphics area.

To select the profile sketch on the non-planar face, you must use the Select Group tool in the SelectionManager to select the individual profile sketch edges.

  1. Click OK .
