Shouldn't that be a Sweep rather than a Loft?

Henrik,

If you do searches on Youtube you will see plenty of tutorials on how to create these types of features.

Basically if you are doing a straight feature that has change between the base and the top then you need to use the loft feature.

If you have to create a snake type feature that may change shape along the curved path then you need to create a swepted feature.

 

I hope this helps you and good luck.
