Is there a way to create twisted cable or wire? I can create a helix using the revolve tool then copy and rotate it to make a twisted double helix shape, but the revolve tool only works with straight lines, not an arc or spline. I want it to look like flexible twisted wire (like the attached image). It there a way to create such a double helix shape and sweep it along a spline or some similar method that would create this effect?
Perfect, this should work for my needs. Thanks.
Wow, that’s really tedious. Hopefully we’ll get 3D path support in the future to make that a whole lot easier.
It kind of works. Okay representation but it is an inaccurate spring model. Definitely a hack. Revolve on a path needed.
