The LH profile is the standard parallel lofting to see where we need to locate our start and end points, I slightly angled the profiles to make seeing them easier.
Next is the profiles for the loft I want to create, I used circles to give me the exact points when I positioned the LH loft over the start end end profiles in this one, I then created the guides making sure they snapped exactly to the centre of those circles.
Second right is the result, then the Rh lofting is where I tried a spline as one of the guides instead of an arc.... the result is a nice smooth loft as you can clearly see.
I have tried selecting fewer guides, it still lofts but the result is not correct......all those guides are needed!
This means we can now do more in TC that we would otherwise have to import from other software, so we can now go a bit more organic in our modelling!
Trying to be to outlandish with excessive curves will still cause an error but is it useful to know why it wasn't working!....
