Time-Saving CAD CAM Tips for Cross Section Surface Lofts

A great way to create blended curved shapes is by using a series of cross sections used to create a surface loft.  In the above video, learn about geometry selection management tools used to speed up your workflow and make cross section surfaces easier to create.

The Cross-Section Surface function creates a surface from a group of wireframe curves that are roughly parallel.To perform the function, you chain select each of the cross section entities one at a time, press the Spacebar to confirm the selection, and click OK. You can have as many cross sections as you like, but you must have at least two. The order in which you select the cross sections determines how the surface is created. keep reading
