I need twisted cylinders instead beveled rectangles. Can I modify my current model or must I restart from scratch?

  • $\begingroup$ The version you share is entirely procedural... all done with modifiers. Do you want that? The version you illustrate is not. It starts with a ready made circle. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @RobinBetts Yes entirely procedural, the second picture should clarify what I mean for cylindrical form. I'm now trying blender.stackexchange.com/a/114566/99884 $\endgroup$

I figured out a pretty easy way to do this

First, create a circle mesh (not a sphere) and ↹ Tab into edit mode. Press A and F in that order to create a face.

While in edit mode, grab the face, hit G, X and press 2 in that order to move it to the right.

Stay in edit mode, press period key, and change it to 3d cursor.

Then, grab your circle, hit ⇧ Shift+D, R, Z, 60 in that order. Repeat this 5 times to get this:

After you get this add the screw modifier, and it should work
