Hi, I'm struggling to make a simple twisted ribbon shape like the one above in Solidworks. I've tried creating a 3D sketch with a rectangle that follows the path to create a loft, but it didn't maintain the constant thickness around the 3D sketch and the loft got sort of twisted. I've also attempted to do a sweep with the rectangle that follows the path, but I cannot seem to get the 3D sketch perfectly right.

 

If anyone could make a simple model or tell me the best way to go about doing this I would be very grateful. Thank you so much!
