Hello, I have a profile that I am trying to sweep along a curve, but also I want it to rotate a full 360 degrees as it sweeps along the curve.
I got the shape I wanted once, but that was done by creating a surface, bending and twisting it. ( The solid in the file ) I’ve been trying to simplify the process and make it easier to adjust the profile shape. It seems that I should be able to do this with a sweep-1 rail, but having the profile at the start and end, it should ‘rotate’ it 360 degrees as it sweeps the rail. But I haven’t been able to get too close to the original. Is there a way to do this with sweep-1 and preserve the shape, distances, and other properties of the profile? Thanks.
