On solidworks, There is an option to rotate the profile along the path as it sweeps. I'm curious if there is anything similar to that ability in Inventor? And if not, if there is a way to create a helix along a curved axis. Thanks
You can sweep a profile along a path or a spine or you might be better off using Inventor's "Coil" command.
Refer to the Help in Inventor for both and how to apply what you're attempting to the one that works best for what you are attempting.
Attach the SolidWorks file here for instructions on how to create the equivalent geometry in Inventor.
