Greetings and a happy new years to all you good folks.
I am using surfaces for the first time and have hit a snag. But first:
I have lofted 3 sketches using guide rails, each of the 3 rails consists of 2 or more arcs. The only way I can use them is to project points onto a new sketch and create a spline. Is this correct?
My plan is to sweep the handle from its farthest point right through the scoop, and then use the surface as a split tool. It worked for "spoon 2013" but when I try to thicken/offset the scoop I get the front edge trying to thicken in the wrong direction. I then noticed an unconstrained sketch, So I back tracked "spoon 2013 II", re-drew the broken sketch, but to no avail!
Any help or advice on a better way to approach this form will be much appreciated

I would not try to model the scoop to it's finished size in one Loft.
Model the surface oversize and then trim back to desired finish size.
