Can someone please tell me why I am unable to get the attached working?  FormZ refuses to perform the loft due to the profile shapes not touching the guide lines.  I believe they are.

Hi Kevin, 

 

As Bartjuan notes, changing the degree of the paths to 3 will allow the lofting to work.  This is because this ACIS operation requires 4 points on the guides to compute and a degree 2 curve only has two points.  The error message on the project window is incorrect and it will be corrected.  Thanks for the report!
