Creating a spine in 2 planes


#1

I am trying to create a tubular shape which has a couple of arms that leave the main shape at an angle in two different planes. Is there a way to extend the tubes out on a spline in 2planes simultaneously?

Do you have some sort of example image? I am not sure I fully understand the question. With an example I may be able to assist.

This is the simple drawing of a body mount. My first time using Shapr so its a bit rough. The problem is with the arms that extend out and back to connect the top bar to the rest. I ended up making the top and bottom first and then creating the connecting tube and trying to place it after to connect the two pieces. I’m sure there is a way of joining them using the sweep tool, I just was having trouble orienting a spine that would connect them. Any help would be appreciated.
