There is a caveat: the profiles must be closed polylines or a series of overlapping closed polylines. I'm working on a TOS exterior in AutoCAD and for the neck I had to do a lofted ellipse at the front and back and then a lofted rectangle in the middle to get the proper profile. When unioned it looks like a smooth shape.

Yeah the discovery on the closed polylines was not...expident...I use region most often.

You maybe able to help me: I need to create sections for loft that use spline like curves but Loft despise splines. Suggestions?

Arcs seem to be my only option with out buying one of these add-ons that convert splines into polylines.
(Perhaps we can make a thread for project questions or something)
