Problems with curve continuity and normals in loft

Hello, I am trying to create a lofted surface from a line. I can’t manage to create 2 clean, closed curves and the result seems to consist of 2 surfaces with opposite normals. I guess this is a trivial matter but I don’t get what I’m doing wrong. Any help please?

With only your screenshot, I guess you could try to flatten your Join Curvesinputs.

It is the solution, however I’m surprised the output is a list and not a tree…

This looks more complex than your post made it sound:

Finding the relevant part, I see much more complexity than needed.

Yes, thank you. The rest of the loft is not clean yet but I guess I have to constrain it with guide lines


What do you mean by “not clean” and “constrain it with guide lines” ?

This is a simplified version to get the same result, which unfortunately is a polysurface (“Open Brep”) instead of a single surface. Not sure how to fix that…? :thinking:

Here is a way to get a single surface:

If you relocate your curve seams like this,(mind symmetry)you could get an untrimmed surface…

Great! Thanks all for the help :slight_smile:
