Hi everyone.

 

I'm struggling to figure out how to loft to a non-parallel surface, or, create a bead like surface in solidworks. It's not possible to simply layer lofts since some faces cut between lofts. For example, my model here:

Would not be a good candidate for just a series of stacks of lofts, because some faces are still in mid draft, while others are at vertex points, in planes parallel to the base plane. Catch my drift?

 

How would one go about this? Would lofting even be the answer? Thanks.
