A helix is an open 2D or 3D spiral.

You can use a helix as a path along which to sweep an object to create an image.
For example, you might sweep a circle along a helix path to create a solid model of
a spring.

When you create a helix, you can specify the following:

• Height
• Number of turns
• Turn height
• Twist direction

If you specify the same value for both the base radius and the top radius, then a
cylindrical helix is created. By default, the top radius is set to the same value

If you specify different values for the top radius and the base radius, then a conical
helix is created.

If you specify a height value of 0, then a flat, 2D spiral is created.

NOTE:

A helix is a spline approximation of a real helix. Length values may not be completely
accurate. However, when you use a helix as a sweep path, the resulting values will
be accurate regardless of the approximation.

sphelix (pl: helixes or helices) is a type of smooth space curve, i.e. a curve in three-dimensional space. It has the property that the tangent line at any point makes a constant angle with a fixed line called the axis. Examples of helices are coil springs and the handrails of spiral staircases.helix is an open 2D or 3D spiral. You can use a helix as a path along which to sweep an object to create an image.
