Hello! I just started using the forum today. So thank you in advance to all that help me out on this problem.
I am simulating a metal wrap that winds around a non conical ax haft. I used a 3D Sketch Helix to create the path. I'm close but the rectangle profile is twisting and warping. I need it to lay on top of the loft surface as done in real life. I am unsure how to use the guide curves in this situation and unsure what to do at this point. Any help would be appreciated.
