How can I bend a part to fit an outline?

Question asked by Sarah Ten Eyck on Jun 28, 2017

Howdy! I've been trying to make this work for something like 10 hours now and I've decided it's time to get some help.

 

I'm working on an assignment where I need to do a load analysis on a tree. Since this involves finding the centers of mass of the major branches I figured modeling it would be the best way to go about it. I've successfully created a 3d model of the tree for the x and y axes. My problem is the z. As you can see from the attached part, I have an outline perpendicular to the model that I need to line it up with. The problem is that everything I try either wildly distorts the 3d sketch or just doesn't do anything at all. Is there a way twist or move the branches without harming the overall geometry? Could it be cut into sections and rotated? It's a quarter to 1am and I'm grasping at straws (not due for another week, I just lost track of time).

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
