    Creating a Twisted Cut / Loft - Advice Please!

      Anyone got any advice on the best way to model this?

      I have the basic revolved shape, but am struggling with the twisted cut.

      I'm thinking the best way to put the twisted cuts in would be to run a cut extrude around a helix? But when I try I am creating something of a mutant sweep and not getting what I expect in terms of shape, or how it follows the helix.

       

      How would everyone else go about it? And what sort of settings would you apply (I don't use the helix often and am getting a bit lost with it).
