Twisted wire?

I am trying to model twisted wire and have tried several approaches but can’t get it right. I’ve created the three strands in Blender with a Bezier circle and Bezier curve but trying to shrink it small enough and twist it has been a problem. Where do you place the origin?

Thanks for any advice.



You can try using a Simple Deform modifier before the curve modifier.
Just make sure that the deform is set to twist.

could also use the screw modifier with a curve path

happy bl

Figured it out. I went into the edit mode and twisted each segment of the Bezier curve and then scaled it down

Thanks for the help.
