Hi, I am having issues with a part I am modeling where I am trying to wrap this "U" shaped cut around this coil. (but have the "U" face outwards at every angle of the coil like it is in the one spot its already in)

I assume that my best option would be to draw a helix and use a curve-driven pattern around the helix, but when I do this the pattern is not made. Also when I try to insert a normal to the curve-driven pattern, nothing will work for the normal. I have attached the part, thanks!
