solidworks loft tutorial for beginners
Open a new part document and sketch below circle on the right plane(see the sketching tutorial)
We need a new plane for the next sketch so go to the features tab and click on the “reference geometry” button then select “plane”.
Plane window appears:
First reference: select right plane from design tree
Offset distance: set it to 70mm
Flip offset: if you wish to reverse the direction check this button
Leave the other options as they are by default and click ok to create the new plane
Sketch another circle on the new plane:
Sketch below curve on the front plane. Note that the end points of the curve must be on the circles otherwise loft feature in next step will not work.
You can use “3poits arc” to draw the curve.
Exit the sketch and click on the “lofted boss/base” on the features tab. Loft window appears. Under the loft window:
Profiles: select two circles as the profiles
Start/end constraints: leave it as it is by default
Guide curves: select the center curve as the guide curve
Leave the other options as they are by default and if you see the preview click ok button.
