    Helix shape in antenna

    T. Pm

      Hi! I'm pretty new using Solidworks and I got some doubts about my project.

       

      What I wanna do is quite a simple design of an antenna. The antenna itself is just a copper wire forming three dipoles separated by two helixes.

      The thing is that I'm not able to make these helixes correctly. I've done the cylinder and created a plane in the place where I want the helix to be but I'm just able to make an isolated helix, not an helix made with the material, don't know if I'm explaining good.

      I guess that it must be an easy thing but, as I say, I got almost no experience. I attach the poor plane I've given and the even poorer thing I've got.

       

      Thanks in advance.
