Extrude with turning

Hi everyone,

 

Does anyone know, can I extrude a profile on the helix? I have complex profile with multiple loops and I can't do this with Surfacing :/ 

 

Best regards,

Use the "swept" command with the helix as your guide; use the "vector direction" option for the orientation and specify the helix axis as the vector. This option will keep the section from rotating as it is swept. If your section curves have multiple loops, it might work better to sweep each loop individually.
