Help creating model of twisted wire pair

I am struggling to create a model of a twisted wire pair.

 

Wire insulation is 2.16mm OD, conducter is 0.64 mm OD

 

Twist is 2 twists per 25.4mm

 

2 conductors to be as close together as possible.

 

I have tried a helix projection, but the rusult is not a round profile.

 

Any suggestions or guidance?

 

2 pictures attached, one of a 2d representation, another of end profile of helix result.

 

Using ST7 MP11

I would use the twist option in the swept protrusion tool.

Have a look at the model in attachments.

Hi @Krishna_Prasad

 

 

 

then I would suggest to better post that question in the NX forum rather than here.

We do a lot here in Solid Edge but I suppose we are limited in NX skills, at least most of us.
