I’m trying to model this shape but I can’t figure out how Can anyone help please?
Consider modeling the main curved shape first, and slicing off the flat part and Capping it second.
here is a model that I built.

this is an approximation of your photos.
I do not know if it is a model which must respect precise dimensions, but the idea is just to give you the shape.
Thank you so much! I’m so sorry but could you post it as rhino5.0 version? I can’t seem to open it

Surface Loft with match tangency checked. Then a little bit of point editing and or changing Surface degree. To match your desired shape.
Merci!! Can I ask the process you took to model this?
@emh here is the video
the approach is just to give an idea for the steps to be taken to build the model.
however I think the @Stratosfear suggestion is better in terms of quality and geometric simplicity.
the surfaces that you will obtain with this approach do not contain any singularity.
I can explain it in a video if you want
Can you post the curves?
Thank you so much for your time I’m trying to figure out the surface loft method too but I can’t seem to get the shape I want

This the the rough curves file!
Thank you! Could I see a video of how this was made by any chance?
Due to life, I have not been able to play with this interesting problem as much as I would have liked.
However, I note one thing that makes this problem more difficult. That is the curve highlighted. Note that it is tangent to the line I have drawn across the face. That means there has to be a transition from tangency to the flat face.
It also mean that you cannot extend the curves, build a surface, then slice off the flat face.
can you share the input curves?
I used the ones posted above.
