this new blender tutorial offers another method that can be adapted to strata. It almost works in Strata but does end up with some tweaking that is needed on the ends or it may be easier to build it with more rotations, subdivide and remove the ends that are slightly irregular.

(just the beginning of the tutorial - building the wire loops relates to this discussion)

Do lathe operations in other 3d apps create the same problems with the profile not remaining perpendicular to the path when changing the vertical sweep?

thanks.

Oh no!! I meant to post this to the "helix" topic.... sorry, I can't seem to edit this so if the moderator would like to move this to the correct topic, or delete it.. either is fine.
