I wanted a Pyramid type body; however on my base sketch only two sides were equal. Let’s say the equal sides are 5 in. And the other two sides are 2 and 4 in. First I tried the Extrude tool with draft but this will not come to anything like a sharp point at the top.
So I lofted the base to a small square above the center of the base. This worked and it looked good. Shelled it out. But I could work only on 2 of the 4 faces of the shape. Did an inset and push to remove the triangles. When I tried to sketch on the other 2, error message. Sketching can only be done on plane faces. But I can select the 4 edges and it seems to be a planar face?

In retrospect, perhaps I should have made my tiny top face with the same proportions as the Base shape and all would be fine? Is this a condition to have lofts with all faces planar? I will do a simple minded experiment to try to understand this better. Thanks
