Extrusions using 3D sketches

I am trying to create a revolved extrusion using the 3D sketch feature.

As you can see I've been able to create a surface loft, but I have several issues beyond that.


1) First, I do not know how to go about properly extruding this surface to the flat surface below it to fill in the empty space. Possibly a surface loft is the wrong avenue?

2) Ideally I'd also like to have each of the 4 sections to loft into each other as well, but do not know how to properly convert the edge entities to connect them.

3) I'd like to reduce the number of sections from 4 to 3, but attempting to do so results in an intersecting geometry error. I would expect more sections, not less sections, to cause this issue and am stumped.

I've seen that 3D sketches tend to be a headache for most people on the forums as well, any and all help is appreciated! Thank you.
