Sweep with path +Guide Surface ?

I´ve been going trough the documentation for a while now but cant find a way to use the "guide surface" option in the API while I can use it in the user interface directly. Can someone please provide an example or help me out ?

Thanks for replying, however it didnt work. The thing is im working in making a screw, and for some reason (maybe a bug) i need to sweep the profile through a path and use a guide surface so that the profile doesnt rotate or deform.

You mean sample did not run for you or it is not what you want. Are you able to do achieve through UI what you intended through API? Can you share the design and script to understand the problem better?

Both

Yes.

As you can see, using a path + guide rail sweep generates an error.

Using a path+guide surface generates the geometry I want and doesnt have any errors (unlike my temporal solution whit lofts. This is the operation I want to use in the API, but I cant find it in the documentation.

Using a simple sweep deforms the profile of the thread.
