I have a long slender 'cylinder' with the following section that I'm trying to twist about the length (z-axis)
I've tried both the Lattice and Simple Deform modifiers but the center becomes thin like it's being stretched out.
It's what you would expect if you twisted an existing object but I'm looking for something more like a column of an old building. This picture is not exactly what I want but close enough to illustrate the goal.
I've only been using Blender for a few weeks so I apologize if this is super simple.
