Hi

 

I am having trouble getting the shape to be smooth.The 2 lofts do not have a smooth continuos flow where they join......as mentioned i am having trouble with this shape....is there a better way to achieve this shape?

Any help appreciated

What's wrong with it? Looks smooth between the two lofts to me.

Hi mrattray

 

sorry i should have sent through this attempt....see where lofts meet at top there is a hump and bottom does not look flowing.........would it work better as 1 loft instead of 2 lofts joined....i was not successful with 1 loft

Edit Loft10, go to the conditions tab and adjust the condition of the transition between the existing body and  the new loft

OK.....would you recommend doing this with 1 loft though instead of 2....if yes would a 3D sketch be needed.?

Either should work, depending on your design intent.
