Hi, i'm a student and i would like to create a fuselage for a personal project, using solidworks. When i use the command LOFT and try to create a good shape, the curve guide doesn't help me to follow my profile, what i've wrong?
Yes but at least with curves that follow the superior part of the model should be enough, if you delete the curves on the top plane.
Two things, the obvious one is that your guide curves don't touch the profiles, as Maha pointed out.
Second, because of all the extra stuff in each sketch, you need to use the Selection Manager to pick the guide curves. You don't need the little horizontal lines at the ends. To avoid the Selection Manager, just put one guide curve per sketch. Plus, you can make a guide curve from a single continuous spline. That will be better in the end than Schizzo1 where you have 3 spline segments for each curve.
Fixing that up, I got the following loft. Plus, I added a second loft to make the nose go to a point. That was just a sketch point and the flat end of the first loft.
thank you very much! My big mistake was to create a single spline and connect all around the profile, while if use more spline the result is more clear. again, thank you

Alberto, do yourself a HUGE favor and go through the built-in SWX tutorials. They are very well done and will dramatically shorten your learning curve. Go through Getting Started and then Basic Techniques. Lofts is in there, but you will benefit from the segments prior to lofts.
