Creating a 3d solid from two lofted surfaces

What is the best way to create a solid "wedge" that is based on a lofted surface between the vertical and horizontal radii shown? I have tried the "loft" option but it will not create anything unless I set the output to surface.

For future reference - you have posted a huge (2Meg) bmp file that could have been posted as a tiny png image file.

Many people do not have fast internet connections or have monthly limits on downloads.

 

Attach the *.ipt file here.

Even if surfaces ends up being the solution - simply Sculpt or Stitch to solid.

Hi!

 

So, you create the surfaces with loft (The top one)

Then use the patch tool to create the other 2 surfaces (Front and Base).

Then use stitch the 3 surfaces. Stitch 3 closed surfaces results in a solid. That's it!!
