Is there a way to sweep a profile to follow two paths?

Hello,

 

I need to produce a web routing diagram and can't see how to force a profile (Sketch17) to follow two 3D lines (3DSketch5) such that it produces the appropriate sweep, a twist in this case, by default. In the attached file I fudged this by using the Twist control in Sweep Options, but this is not the same as having the profile 'ride' the two lines to ensure model accuracy. In this case, the web guides are at right angles to each other, but this may not always be the case and generating the web route part in place guarantees that the web will route correctly.
