Example: Lofting between two parts and a workplane set
In this example, you will create a loft (loft1) using the workplane set and the parts shown.
Example: Creating a Part-Set-Part Loft
After creating the parts, plus the workplanes and profiles:
1. Click Modeling and then, in the Model group, click More.
2. Click Create ML in Basic Loft section.
3. On the Modeling tab, in the Model group, click More and then, click To Part in Basic Loft section. The Loft to Part and Select dialog boxes open.
4. Specify the part to create. Click Part, and enter /loft1 in the data entry field next to Part.
5. Click the option list next to Type and choose Pa/Set/Pa.
6. Specify the part edges for the loft.
Click Edges1. Creo Elements/Direct Modeling displays the Select menu. Add (under List) is already pressed, so click By Face (under Methods). Then click a part face facing the workplane set and End (under List). Creo Elements/Direct Modeling closes the Select menu and highlights the clicked part face and its edges.
Click Edges2 and proceed as above to select and highlight the opposing part face and its edges.
7. Specify the workplane set for the loft. Click WP Set and click the matchline in the workplane set.
8. To add the still missing matchlines click Complete ML. Then click the vertices on the parts and profiles which you want to connect with matchlines.
9. To preview the loft, click Preview.
10. Make sure Check Part is clicked on.
11. Click to complete the operation.
Creo Elements/Direct Modeling creates the loft between the two parts and the workplane set.
