I’ve used @eneroth3 's Upright Extruder very successfully in the past, but this time it isn’t doing what I expect, and I can’t see why not.
I’m trying to extrude a rectangular U-shaped channel along a curved series of edges.
I selected the face, and all the segments of the curved edges.
Instead of extruding the channel upwards, It just offsets it sideways.
If I weld the segments into a curve using TIG Weld, I get the same result.
If I move the face so one corner is at the end of the (welded) curve, and try again, it does this time extrude, but with a weird twist which renders the result useless.
I know from a previous post and reply from the author that Upright Extrude doesn’t work with faces that have holes, but this isn’t the case here.
Any idea what’s going wrong?
An ordinary FollowMe works as expected, but rotates the face which I don’t want - I want the extruded face to stay horizontal, not like the top of the result of FollowMe.
Here’s the SKP file, if anyone would like to try it.

The documentation doesn’t say anything about which directions the plugin might be limited to, andI I’ve used it successfully with other similarly oriented curved edges to extrude along.
