Transfer normals from geometry to spiral around it then sweep

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm trying to transfer the normals from a stretched sphere, to a spiral around it, then sweep it using the ribbon shape.

It looks like the normals are transfered no problem, but then when I sweep, it doesn't look right. It's either stretched, on an weird angle, or noisy (kind of like a mountain modifier).

I think the problem lies in the up direction. I tried Y axis, normal, custom attribute that is the cross between the normal and the tangentu...

It always look weird, especially on the ends. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks!
