    How does one sketch a helix that conforms to 1.618 in X and Z

      How does one sketch a helix that conforms to 1.618 in X and Z have figured it out before i think but unfortunately i lost all my models that were on a drive that failed.

      I remember using 3D sketch and making cubes but i'm sure their is an equation one can use that would be much quicker.  I know Solidworks is not capable of truly doing this but it can be done close enough for what i need. 

       

      Here is something that i was trying to do but can't remember how i did it, it also wasn't what i wanted.  Take for instance the red pipe, I want the beganing to be say 12" and taper to the end in relation to 1.618 or Fibonacci numbers but also in rise Z and pitch X
