  • To create a lofted plate, click Steel > Plate > Create lofted plate.
  • To create a lofted slab, click Concrete > Slab > Create lofted slab.

Use two Construction Polycurves to create Lofted Part:

  • Select the first construction polycurve.

Unfold lofted plates

You can now unfold lofted plates in single-part drawings.

The unfolding works for lofted plates which have been created from single geometry to single geometry, and for tangential polycurve lofted plates.

Examples of unfolded lofted plates created from single geometry to single geometry:
