LOFT command

Creates 3D solids or 3D surfaces.

BricsCAD Shape; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM



Creates 3D solids or 3D surfaces passing through 2 selected cross sections.

Note: When the CREATESKETCHFEATURE system variable is ON, loft features are created in a dedicated BC_SKETCHES layer, which is not visible by default.
Note: The CREATESKETCHFEATURE system variable can also be controlled by pressing the CreateSketchFeature toggle button in the ribbon.


Determines if the resulting loft is a solid or a surface.
Creates lofts as solid.
Creates lofts as surfaces.
Uses both cross-sections and guide lines between the selected cross sections to create the loft.
Note: When DELOBJ system variable is set to 2, the selected guide entities are deleted.
Specify the path curve.
Cross sections only
Uses only cross section entities to create the loft, and no guides.
Sets variables that affect how the loft is constructed.
Draws straight surfaces between the cross sections, features sharp edges at each cross-section.
Smooth fit
Draws smooth surfaces between the cross sections.
Normal to
Draws surfaces normal to the chosen cross sections. Select one of the options to become one of the following results:
  • Start
  • Both
  • End
  • All
Draft angles
Specifies the angles at the starting and ending cross-sections to modify the loft shape.
Note: The angle option specifies the angle at which the loft starts from a cross section. The magnitude option sets the relative distance of the surface from the cross section in the direction of the draft angle before surface starts to bend towards next section.
