# What is a boundary surface SolidWorks?

## What is a boundary surface SolidWorks?

The boundary surface feature lets you create surfaces that can be tangent or curvature continuous in both directions (all sides of the surface). In most cases, this delivers a higher quality result than the loft tool.

What is loft in SolidWorks?

Loft creates a feature by making transitions between profiles. A loft can be a base, boss, cut, or surface. You create a loft using two or more profiles.

### What is a surface loft?

Loft Surfaces are surfaces generated by multiple 3D Curves or existing edges creating a smooth tangency between the selected curves. Match Points are created between each selection denoting the orientation and path of the loft surface.

How do I loft two surfaces in SolidWorks?

To create a lofted surface:

1. Create a plane for each profile section of the loft. The planes do not need to be parallel.
2. Sketch the section profiles on the planes.
3. If necessary, create guide curves.
4. Click Lofted Surface (Surfaces toolbar) or Insert > Surface > Loft.
5. Set the PropertyManager options.
6. Click OK .

## How do you do a surface loft in SolidWorks?

Are You struggling with loft or boundary features in SolidWorks?

If you’ve been struggling with Loft or Boundary features in SOLIDWORKS, fear no more! Known for being two of the more complex features in the program, Loft and Boundary features often require precise selections and careful sketch management for the most accurate and attractive results.

The Loft feature has been in SOLIDWORKS since at least 1997, and maybe even earlier. It is the simplest way to allow the software to interpolate a shape between two or more profiles. It works with solids and surfaces, and it has unique functions as well as some overlap with the Boundary feature.

### What is the difference between the loft tool and boundary surface?

The boundary surface feature lets you create surfaces that can be tangent or curvature continuous in both directions (all sides of the surface). In most cases, this delivers a higher quality result than the loft tool.

What is boundary surface in SolidWorks?

The Boundary surface feature in SOLIDWORKS can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. It is the basic surface type that most users go to when they need to make a complex shape. There are many options you can use like the Drag Sketch to make this feature easier to edit in real time.
