Control sweep along surface

Hello,

 

I need help ton control a sweep feature,:

I have a mold with not regular (complex) 3D geometry. On the edge I need to add an overthickness following the mold surface. I created a 3dsketch for the path. When the sweep geometry turn around the mold edge it rotates and I loose the sweep feature orientatio(i need the overthickness to be very regular).

but:

1. I cannot control rotation because it is not a "regular trajectory".

2. It is difficult to create a guide curve since nothing isd flat or regular.

 

Do i use the wrong technique? how would you proceed.

Thank you
