The letters look something like the attached, about an inch high.I need to model that using the .280 x .140 rectanglar profle.
Ha this should be fun!
This is how I would create the 3D sketches.
I estimate it would take me about 8 hrs to complete the project (unfortunately I don't have 8 hrs to spare, but I might be able to get at least one letter).
I think a while back I did that tutorial but I'm rusty with this kind of modeling since there is no need for it here. i'll go thru it to refresh my skills.
One letter would be great to give me a starting point.
You could also try taking a straight length and use the bend tool to maniuplate it.
You obviously can't do the entire word with one continuous piece, but you could make multiple pieces which could be welded together.
Thats interesting and fairly simple idea. just need to plot the script font for the points so it looks like an L.
Don't have enough time to fully explain but I hope you understand this methode:
More about that tomorrow (maybe)

the sweep cant intersect, it needs to below or above at the intersect point.
Thanks for the idea and time
Keeping on the theme of everyone's posts. Just something to consider and not sure if it applies here. A continious 3D path would not work for an upper case S in script as it self intersects. I would try to create each letter as a part file. Start a sketch by overlaying the script letter in the hieght you want. Then trace a 2D path around it. Then try sweeping that. Connect each letter with constraints in Assembly mode to get exact cuts to lining it up. Junst my two cents.
