Loft preview works but disappears when applied

Postby crimmy68 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 11:51 am

Hi,

I have 3 fully constrained sketches.
When I try to execute an additive loft I can see the part being lofted as I expect to happen in the preview but when I click on the final "OK" button
The loft is created in the hiarchy (and visable) but the actual part just isn't there.

I'll upload the FCStd file
The are 3 sketches visable just try to loft these sketches to see what I mean

Anyone has an idea what might be wrong here ?

Thanks in advance
Best regards crimmy68

There has to be an overlap between the additive loft and the plate with the ventilation hole.

Could you please explain what you mean by "floating solid"?

It's in the PartDesign Body description. Discontiguous solids inside the same Body are not permitted. If you have two solids that don't touch each other, you could say that one is "floating" with respect to the other.
