Multi-Section Surface with blade sections


New member
Hi there,

I am trying to create a blade with the multi-section surface command. I've drawn the blade sections in sketcher on a different plane for each one. When I use the multi- section surface command, I get errors that the sections lead to a cusp, or when I use guide curves it states that the loft operator couldn't homogenize the sections properly. Either way it won't work! Any advice would ne greatly appreciated!


without a picture for reference, I have to guess....

1. make sure your sections are closed
2. make sure direction of each section is the same (red arrows should all be pointing in the same clockwise direction)
3. make sure the closing points are the same on each section
