True lofting is more than just sweeping curves through space to genreate surfaces. The proper use of curves creates proper surfaces. Once the surface has been generated, you need to go back and massage the surfaces to maintain critical specifications such as:
Curvature Control is controlling the radius of each arc. Curve Analysis should result in a Bell Curve. A negative radius is unacceptable for an air foil as it indicates an inverse or dent.
Tangency Control is the Angle between two Surface Boundaries The lack of tangency results in surfaces that cannot be concatenated or joined to an adjacent surface. This leads to poor modeling practices
Polygon arrangement is the placement of control points on a patch.
Poor polygon arrangement results in:
Good lofting polygon arrangement is key
Correspondence of points is the alignment and organization of adjacent patches. Lack of correspondence control will create a data explosion when surfaces are concatenated
Parameterization is the manual control of polygonal alignment and tangency of adjacent patches. Misaligned patches will cause operations such as surface offsets and fillets to fail. Parameterization is required for downstream usability.
