A conductor assembly and method for constructing an assembly of the type which, when conducting current, generates a magnetic field or which, in the presence of a changing magnetic field, induces a voltage. In one embodiment the method includes providing a first insulative layer having a curved surface along which a conductor segment may be positioned, and forming a channel in the insulative layer, which defines a first conductor path. The channel includes first and second opposing channel surfaces each extending from the surface of the insulative layer into the insulative layer and a third channel surface extending between the first and second channel surfaces. Each of the first and second channel surfaces includes a substantially flat surface portion with the surface portion of the first channel surface parallel with the surface portion of the second channel surface. A first segment of conductor is placed in the channel.
