hi, i dont know if this is the best way to solve your problem, but duplicate the object (make a copy not an instance) and make it a new group, then delete the latice shape (square circle thing) then the original model will streighten out, then delete that leaving the copy, (which should still be curved) then assign this to the path and change the side and up twist of -90 on each, then thats your problem sorted
