Hi nc dave. I was just going to post for you the top view of a sraight line sweep. The red is the old sweep path. The green would have to be the new one to have it stay flat on the edges. Looks like you have that figured out though.

Hi Dave, your 2-rail sweep results looks great!

Is that a solution for you then? Please let me know if you are still stuck.

yes, that is the solution. Its so fast. I think I can make gears in about 50 seconds. When I get my steam punk mecha done, I'll post.

Thanks for all the help and all the effort you put in with your uses. this forum is amazing. I hope MoI becomes what you want (profitable, etc.). I know I will continue to be a supporter.

>created 2 helix curves to use as rails

Another way too. 2 rail sweep: use 1 helix curve + 1 line from centerpoint to centerpoint.
