Trying to create a double helix using E3D.
Found a guy using the exact same idea I had creating a ladder using primitives and twisting it but for some reason my ladder just breaks apart and does not create a double helix.
Even though the person uploaded a project file I can't find what I'm doing wrong.
Probably something super easy I overlooked but I'm stumped.

Did the response over there help?
They said:

1) The whole thing needs to be in the same group folder

2) The vertical edge pieces need to have many height segments so that there is something to deform.

3) You want a relatively long "ladder" to twist, as the shorter it is, the more you twist the individual "steps".
