can't target a line alone during making a surface loft


Recommended Posts

i'm watching a video on youtube of a how to draw a helicopter blade, i understand what is going on in the video, but there is one point i can't follow. right when



I did exactly everything he did until that point, where i can't target the open loop(the line), instead it targets the sketch(3 lines connected to each other).


I attached my last progress file blade5.SLDPRT .. i'm using solidworks 2015 sp2.1

He selects the two endpoints as "profiles" (blue)

The lines (e.g. length of the blades) are both selected using the "Guide Curve" (Purple) selection tool.


I think? Thats how I interpret your query :?

If you need a single line from a sketch you need to right click and use "selection manager". I didn't watch the video but im guessing that is the issue.
