 Cannot loft: selected entities not valid

Hi

I am trying to loft a series of closed 2d polyline cross sections to create a landscape solid or surface.

It will do 5 but selecting anymore causes it to say the "selected entities are not valid".

this is the link to the autodesk article
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...linkID=9240617

but I'm having trouble understanding it. I tried opening all the polylines but that just didn't work.

I've tried revsersing the selection order but no go either.

I will have a go at planesurf but really I was hoping to loft a solid.

Any suggestions?

I'll try and post the file but it's pretty big.

I would try doing 5 at a time. If if works then boost this to 10 at a time. I think the fit will be OK.
