On the attached part I am trying to make a lofted cut such that cut is tangent to the face of the disk (top plane) at the edge of the profile in sketch7 (identified in the following picture).
you will need a "helper" surface (i used planar surface, but others would work). and a boundary cut instead of loft.
Jeremiah. Thanks for your answer. I am struggling to recreate your solution though. Could you provide more detail on the steps?
like Jesse, i am on a newer version, so i didn't attach my file.
here are the steps i would use;
The file I would post is a newer version of 2018 and you wouldn't be able to open, check the attached images in sequential order.
The loft doesn't resolve with tangency using the sketch7 on it's own (sometimes tangency is available as an option using a sketch, mostly it needs a surface or model edge to draw a tangent face condition from). The boundary cut resolves with tangency, but first I used a split line to make some edge/face to get tangency from w/o creating a new ref surface body....but both ways work.
Sketch6, it's useful to split the circle into equal qty. sketch segments that your other profile will have, to control the flow or blend behavior and positioning for this loft/boundary feature...otherwise it can rotate or twist about oddly and inconsistently.
Use the selection manager to collect up those 4 edges to create a loop or selection set for one of the profiles, choose tangency to face (sometimes this toggles off, so watch it's setting).
