Loft/Sweep in 2 directions?? autodesk help please

Posted · Loft/Sweep in 2 directions?? autodesk help please

Hello, I need to model a part, in Autodesk Inventor, for (somewhat of) an assessment so I want to make sure I have the most efficient, neatest method in doing so. I know a few different ways, but I think using sweep or lost would probably be the cleanest way of doing. I have attached a drawing (I have the Parasolid model). I'm thinking about extruding the inside base, then extruding the tapered walls up. The outside wall surface comes in at 1 degree, but the inside wall surface stays perpendicular to the bottom plane. I want to be able to sweep or loft without having to do trig (based on 1 degree and the height) and make a new sketch at the top height. There's got to be someway to sweep the bottom rectangular profile up by just using paths and guide sketches/surfaces, right?? I'm sorry if this is confusing but any help would be appreciated. Thank you
