I made this model by creating a twisted sweep of 3 circles following a helix path. I'm wondering if it's possible to make it curve similar to how you see in the sketch, since you can't curve a helix. I'm using solidworks 2015
I did this a while back for a harness but it's a little different in scope.
the radius on your proposed path looks like it may be a little to tight to avoid self-intersecting errors. but in general, yes, that is doable. it does require making some construction geometry to define the path of the sweep.
Hello Patrick,.. yeah, it's possible but it's also subjective... you may need more turns at the curve/end?
