How to get this portion?
In the PM for the sweep one profile and one path. Here there is 3 profiles and 2 guided curve.
Maha,.. based on what I see for the profile/gc's.. I'm suggesting a sweep for "that portion" ...then, Loft at the end.... simple, very straight forward, not complicated.
imho... there is no reason it needs to be a "all-in-one-do-it-all" loft.... and the old drawing looks very analytical and the loft would create splines or loose the analytical transitions.
Can't you do that as a simple Extrude?
Are all of your files named Part1.sldprt? (If so, that is not a very good file management practice.)
You would you extrude to have that shape?

See attached "solution".
Sorry - I mean how would you - just typing from my iPhone
I usually do many trial and error on my original work. If it goes wrong I delete that file and start new file, therefore until finalise I do not give specific name. In other word Part1.sldpart is a playing file.
Does mirror command will work with ruled and thicken surface? Because mirroring this flange giving trouble.

Why are you using surface modeling for simple geometry?
Have you done a Section View of your part and looked at the wall thickness and continuity?
There are two reasons:
-Lofting between two sketches will automatically create a hollow structure then I can use Thicken tool to convert it into solid.
-There is an un-dimensioned shape which I mentioned in my original post. I found Trim surface tool was handy to get this shape.
Let me try without surface modeling as you did.
I am looking section view to find out the error.
There are 2 different thickness given I included that in my model.
..yes,.. but.. those 4mm flanges are the only features.... and can be omitted/added to later.
..doing this in surfaces is good practice and about as easy as the solids,. but, in this case,.. solids kind of wins for ease.
(I had to do it in extrusions.. but see J. Mathers already did it with extrusions..)
Yes, I was in a hurry and missed that.
See corrected file attached.
In your work inside also gets fillet. In my work it doesn't. I do not know the reason.
Shell should occur after Fillets.
If I want to have all half cylinder like structure thickness is 4mm, fillet before shell does not work but fillet after shell works.
Show me where on the drawing you are getting information that the wall thickness of the Shell of the cylinder is 4mm.
If there is no real world example, it is okay.
