Loft with 3d sketch

Hello all,

I was wondering how I should go about making this loft/fill between a face and sketch to follow the points set up by a 3d sketch.  I'm still quite the noob at this so needed some input from the experts here.  I've attached the image with the feature I want marked in red.  The part file is included so you guys can see how horrible my technique is :smileytongue:

You need at least two closed loops (start and end) and a path.

Well, I got it to work by toying with surface modeling (which I learned is taught in the advanced inventor course I won't be able to take for another year.  But I can't seem to make it a solid.  Is it because I don't have "surfaces" on the solid faces to stitch to?

 

Thanks in advance for the help. This internship has higher expectations than I expected but I figure it's a good learning experience still. :smileyvery-happy:
