Planar transformer winding

I'm trying to build a 3D model of for a planar transformer winding that looks like the following image.

As a first step I draw the elementary turn along which the wire will be swiped.

From there the function "offset entities" is super useful, however strangely it cannot be repeated N times so that to directly get the desired number of turns.


Then the wire is swiped along that line, leading to the image below

Once again it leads to frustration as no function to duplicate that geometry to construct a planar winding is available.


Am I really missing something?


My objective from the result would be to parametrize the elementary turn and then be able to set the number of turns. Any good recommendations?
