You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Modeling > Surfaces > Create Surfaces > Loft > Loft Transition
  • Toolbox: Create Freeform Surfaces

Axis Sets the direction of the surface.
  • Points (AccuDraw) — Direction of height is defined graphically. AccuDraw can be used to define the drawing plane on which the points are placed.
  • Screen X, Y, or Z — Direction of the height is set to the screen's X, Y, or Z axis.
  • Drawing X, Y, or Z — Direction of the height is set to the drawing's, or model's, X, Y, or Z axis.
Orthogonal If on, the axis of the surface is perpendicular to the sections.
Top Radius If on, sets the radius of the circular section.
Base Length If on, sets the length of the rectangular section.
Base Width If on, sets the width of the rectangular section.
Height If on, sets the height of the surface.
