Draft pathArray perpendicular solids

I have created a solid and would like to repeat the solid according to a path (create with sketcher). I notice that the solid being repeated maintains it's orientation. I would like each repeated solid to be perpendicular to the path. Is this possible?

Re: square and elliptical gear
