HI Ave-5d,

well this is an easy answer:

1: YOur Loft is SUBTRACTIVE ...and there is nothing to cut out
2: Your both sketches are on same plane.. there is no extension for a loft

i modded it so u can see how it would work...

i changed Z attachment of the sketch ( circle ) some millimeters upwards
i set tip to the multitransform and inserted a pad above the datum plane
and you see the loft cut through the pad


watch my video here:
