I’m trying to make a pipe spiral rest along a surface. I have created a spiral path and used a pipe tool with the curve. I would like the resultant pipe be tangent to the surface and not intersect.
I know for a straight cylinder I could just offset the helix by the radius of the pipe, but how do I handle the dome portion of the cylinder?
Here is my path
and I would like the pipe to be along the surface.
