Revolve A profile that twists as it turns?

Recommended Posts

Here's an other one for you all.

I would like to revolve a square profile around a center, but with the profile itself twisting 360? around itself while it's revolving...do you know what I mean?

I tried duplicate array of the profile with rotation and then perform a loft, selecting the same rotated corner around the array, but I was not able to click to the starting/ending profile dupe to complete the twist as a closed solid.

So I got a lofted twisted profile with a gap between the 2nd last and first/last one...

Can this sort of thing be done here?

TurboCAD could "Revolve with Twist" no problem...

Post your trial! It's kind of like the Mobius, but 360 rotation rather than 180.

Sounds like the loft dialog "Closed" option might do it. You might need to adjust the Select Alignment by Point, too.
