When creating a loft, SOLIDWORKS creates a set of connectors that represent how the loft profiles line up to each other to determine the shape of the loft feature.
There are more sets of connectors available beyond the default set. While creating/editing the left feature, right-click in the graphics window and choose “Show All Connectors” to reveal all sets of connectors defining the loft shape.
Connectors can be moved. Simply drag a connector point on a loft profile to change the loft shape.
This is just one of the tips I’ll be presenting in my Lofting Tips and Tricks session (along with more on connectors, such as how to add more of them and how to control transitions more precisely) at our Engineer 3D! conference.
See you in a few weeks at Engineer 3D!
