That's what I'd do. Was there some reason you needed a loft or couldn't use a cut?

I always meant to, it was mentioned, but I never got around to downloading it on my laptop this time around because I never got a large portion of time to set aside for the download, because I'm living at home.

As for your issue, that's the way I would think of doing it as a start. However using a loft is equally as good, the trouble with the lofts is that they don't always seem to accept your guide curve.

Whenever my lofts went wrong it was either I was choosing the wrong entities in the wrong selection boxes, or my guide curve wasn't piercing the two reference shapes.

A loft normally consists of 3 sketches on solidworks, you have the 2 sketches of your shapes in parallel planes, and then you have a curve on the perpendicular plane joining the two. Normally the end point will lock onto the line like it normally does in a sketch, but when you zoom in or rotate,there may be a slight gap.

You might want to try relating them with a "pierce" when you select the end point, and the sketch with ctrl like you were selecting to make two lines co-linear.

Anyway a loft would be useful only if you stopped the bar short, and did a little face sketch and lofted it the rest of the way.

Another thing to consider is the draft tool. So far I only used the draft tool on square shapes, and you can select points and features to draft from with the correct reference geometry such as a reference sketch or a plane, but I don't know if it does circular drafts like that to make square thing circular.

but yeah I waffled tl;dr that's the way I would do it, it may not seem pretty when there are all these tools and plugins, but it's the easiest without struggling with all the tools and features that you might not know how to use. Just make sure you hide your reference sketches.

it shouldn't be a problem anyway, it'd only be a problem if the part was in a tight space and doing something like that would cut into other aspects.

**exoripper used "*roll picture*"**
**exoripper rolled image**I've got an upbeat personality, my metabolism isn't supersanic but it's pretty good I can ear fastfood for weeks at a time before I start putting weight on , and I can take broken bones like a pro. I do catch more than 6 hours of sleep when there's nothing else to do, but man am I grumpy and feel like crap when I do. 4-5 hours of sleep feels ideal.

Would be illegal in Califonia. Can't charge anyone more or less based on gender.

Christian private businesses have lost for not serving LGBT, even recommending someone to do it they lost.

Arguably not tho, LGBT is a smaller chunk of the population.
+= Every christian shop I've been in is already stripped for cash.

Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that busineses have been hit by lawsuits (and lost) for not serving a group of people on the basis of discrimination. By that same reasoning then, regardless of whether you agree with the original case or not, this business could be sued.
