Has anybody ever requested the idea of using the pipe command, but for the piping to be off axis? So it would basically be similar to a Sweep1 with Quad points of circular sections on the rail, except you would have the convenient automation that comes with the Pipe command.
I think it would be expected that a limitation of it is that all the quad points would be on the same side… maybe just aligned with whatever the CPlane in which the command is invoked is? And maybe that the curve would need to be planar, and the off-axis-ness will be a bit weird in some cases.
