I'm trying to create a swept surface - where I can draw it's path on the front plane, but then to have the profile rotate along a helix. Like the attached imagine.

 

I'm able to achieve this if the path is a straight line - then I simply use the helix as the path - but when my path is more complex then a straight line I can't seem to figure out a solution. 

 

Any tips?

 

It seems as though I'd simply be able to select the helix as the guide path - but that absolutely doesn't work and creates very odd geometry.
