Hello everyone, I usually work with basic shapes that don't require extensive surface manipulation but I've been stumped over this problem for a good amount of time now.
What I'm trying to make:
A taurus/donut shaped object that gives off the appearance of swiveling on itself to create a pig's tail/spiral motif on both sides. (See sketch).
What I have done:
Created an oval profile sketch for a spiral swept boss/base path; so far it just looks like a slightly twisted taurus. (See sketch).
Doing a compressed helix/spiral with 2 revolutions brings out the shape I desire, but I still can't make the ends elegantly thin out.
