Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

You will create this container during the tutorial :

1 112 solidworks loft tutorial

What we use to accomplish this model :

  • Plane
  • Sketch , line , spline , circle , ellipse , centerline
  • Loft
  • Revolve
  • Fillet
  • Shell
  • Sweep

First of all examine the body of the picture . can you see the sections that we need to create a loft ?! see the bellow picture :

2 112 solidworks loft tutorial

This is the main frame of the body that we are going to create . as you can see these sketches are in different planes so first of all we will create those planes .use the reference geometry button –in features tab- and select plane to define the following planes :

Plane1 :

 4 112 solidworks loft plane2


 6 112 solidworks loft plane3


 8 112 solidworks loft plane3 

Now create the sketches on the planes and join the sections by loft :

15 112 solidworks loft loft 16 112 solidworks loft loft

revolve the upper section 

19 112 solidworks loft revolve

Now we have this model:

21 112 solidworks loft

We are going to shell this model in next step so it’s better to fillet the sharp edges now :

22 112 solidworks loft fillet 23 112 solidworks loft fillet

Fillet these edges too:

24 112 solidworks loft fillet 25 112 solidworks loft fillet

Now we are ready to shell the part :

26 112 solidworks loft shell 27 112 solidworks loft shell

create a helix for fastening of the cap

 31 112 solidworks loft helix spiral

32 112 solidworks loft sweep 

and the final result:

33 112 solidworks loft done
