Create a helix to be used either as a building block for constructing geometry or as a
wire.
On the Construct tab, in the Create arc
group, click the Helix icon.Tip: Press A,4 to use the shortcut key.
Method 1: Base centre, base radius, end radius, height, turns

Origin (C) 
The centre point of the helix base. 
Base radius (R_{b}) 
The radius of the helix base (parallel to the UV plane). 
End radius (R_{t}) 
The height of the helix, in the N axis direction. 
Turns (N) 
The number of turns of the helix (the rotation direction is selected based on
the Left handed check box). 
Method 2: Base centre, radius, pitch angle, turns

Origin (C) 
The centre point of the helix base. 
Radius (R) 
The radius of the helix (parallel to the UV plane). 
Pitch angle (A) 
The angle formed between the tangent of the curve and the UV plane  constant along the length of the helix. 
Turns (N) 
The number of turns of the helix (the rotation direction is selected based on
the Left handed check box). 
Method 3: Base centre, radius, height, pitch angle

Origin (C) 
The centre point of the helix base. 
Radius (R) 
The radius of the helix (parallel to the UV plane). 
Height (H) 
The height of the helix, in the N axis direction. 
Pitch angle (A) 
The angle formed between the tangent of the curve and the UV plane  constant along the length of the helix.
