Tapered Extrude

I have a shape I need to extrude. The problem is that I need it t
taper as it extrudes. For instance, picture a rectangular piece o
tubing with very round corners, that is 2.0" x 1.45" on one end,

to 2.5" x 1.95" on the other end, so a half inch taper on eac
How do I do a taper extrude like this? I'm using SW2004

Use DRAFT when extruding if it angle is same on all surfaces, use FACE DRAFT on extruded faces if angle is not the same.

If you want exact dimensions you might want to draw both ends in proper relation to eachother and add a simple loft between them.
Other wise you could sketch it out for a sweep with a guide curve.
Or use draft and calculate the angle you need though if the ratios aren't exact It looks like yours are exact so your triangle is 6" x .25 although if there is the possibility of needing one of the dimensions to chang or the ratio changing you will have to start over wheras the other two suggestions have a bit more leway
