# Generate solid by sweeping ellipse bounded by two curves upward

Answered

I’m very new to FreeCAD, and I’m having trouble designing an odd shape. I need to generate a solid by sweeping an ellipse upward, with the radius of the ellipse increasing as it sweeps, as pictured here:

The ellipse should always be “touching” the guide curves. It would also be great if the solid generated would be hollow. Is there a way to do this?

I’m not too familiar with FreeCAD but from a quick Youtube search, I see that the program has a Loft function which is what use in my other CAD software if I want to create a shape like the on you’re describing.
