Loft in Inventor
I want to make a solid that starts as a circle and ends like a trapezoid with curved edges (see the image attached). I want the solid to have a specific route as shown in the image, How can I define the imputs in the loft command?
Hi William, I was just going thru the GrabCAD library, and I came across a model for a "Crane Hook" by Tony Davies. I downloaded the model to check it out, the model seems to implement a lot of loft procedure for unusual shapes like what has been discussed. Anyway you might want to download it and take a look.
I don't think loft will work for this. Loft is more just a combination of extrude and taper wrapped into one command, its not really for what I think your trying to do here. You might look into some of the "surface" commands like possibly "sculpt", I don't have to much experience with the surface commands but it could be helpfull.
