Marble machine tracks in Onshape

Hi Onshape Forum,

I like to challenge myself with a new little project and thought about building a nice marble machine for my children and myself :-)
My question, Is it possible in Onshape to design this kind of curves rails (as per enclosed picture?)
I currently just see the option to draw rails that are "flat" since restricted to a sketch plane.

Please let me know if there is a way to realise this kind of "freeform" shape or would I need to use different applications for that kind of design.

Thank you,

    Thank you @Dave_Petit  and @JakeRamsley. This is a way to realise what I was looking for but I think I will do it in other applications where just one sketch, one profile and one sweep is needed. Thanks again.
