What is best CAD software for SWEEP along curve?


New member
I currently only have experience using Modo. What is the best program for creating a sweep along a single path/curve that can achieve the following:

  1. Transition from one profile to another e.g. circle to square like here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6UKC5GWSY4
  2. Control the transition from one profile to another with a function curve (non-linear)
  3. Control the rotation (twist) between profiles with a function curve. (non-linear)
  4. Ready for 3d print – cleanest possible model
  5. A way to create a good render (ideally just export to Modo).

Any help would be great!


P.S. I did not see a general questions thread
