Lofting a hollow tube along a centerline.
chasworth posted a topic in Autodesk InventorI have the beginning and ending elements of a tube. It seems like I should be able to loft the cross sections to create a tapered and offset tube. With rails selected I sometimes get the inner diameter to project in a straight line between the surfaces, but when I click OK I get an error, create loft feature failed. One time I was able to select the centerline as a path and saw the inner surface follow the curve, but usually when I click on the centerline icon in the loft window the preview of the loft disappears. I really want the whole tube cross section to loft, not just the inner and outer surfaces. End goal is a file for a 3D printer to build the tube.Intake Hose left and Right ends.ipt
