      Hello.

      Im trying to model reinforcement as beam elements, however some of them wont follow the hellical patch that I've created.

      Could you try inserting a sizing control (mesh>insert>sizing), add a element size/number of divisions and set the behavior to hard. See if this solves the issue.

      Hello,
      I already tried that and some other ways of refining the mesh but it hasn't helped. However I overcame this issue by modeling curves in separate CAD software and importing them into ansys. Beams still happens to be distorted in workbench, but when I apply the mesh both geometry and mesh size is fine, so I suppose it's some kind of SpaceClaim issue.
