I have a question about the sweep cut feature. Can you use a Intersection Curve instead of a Helical Sweep to sweep cut a part?
Is this ?
I believe you can. Give it a try.
Yeah, I've tried. No success.

Can you post your part for us to attempt to do what you want?
No problem. Here it is.
I would look at it but I am not running SW2020 yet. However, just to make sure I created a Cut-Sweep using an Intersection Curve and it worked. So it is possible.
Yes, but if Intersection Curve have more entries (ex. from two or more surfaces) better convert it to spline before use as path.
There were a couple of problems. The profile wasn't fully closed. There were 2 gaps. I created a new sketch convert entities from your existing sketch and fixed it. The second problem was that the profile sketch plane needs to be perpendicular to the path. I created a reference plane perpendicular to the profile and once again used convert entities from the previous sketch onto then new plane. Then swept cut worked using your path and the sketch that was perpendicular to it.
Thanks you for your help. Still having issue with a clean cut through the part. I've attached a photo of the part sliced and formed.
It looks like the rotation of your sketch is off by something like 90 degrees:
Any tooling experts out there with some other guidance for this?
If it is the intersection between 2 surfaces, then, instead do the following:
Use 1 surface to trim the other.
Create a 3D sketch, then select the new edge(s) from the trimmed surface and use "Convert Entities" to convert them to a spline.
Then use the 3D sketch as your path.
Can you explain in further detail, please?
I wonder if you can't use "Flex" and "Twist" here?
And here he is! Who is a men?

While flex may produce something that "looks" correct, I do not believe it is intended to give accurate results. Please someone from a VAR or SW correct me if I'm wrong.
As far as I remember, it was even an official tutorial on how to use this tool for drill modeling
In fact, the chip groove is not the most important thing when modeling cutting tools. The right cutting edge angles determine their quality.

Interesting...I recently sent my VAR a file where I was trying to recreate an example from a book and Flex couldn't create the feature as it was done in the book. They lead me to believe what I posted above. Maybe I'm wrong.
And I guess for the case presented, when you create something like what appears to be a drill bit, how you machine it is conveyed via data on the drawing versus dimensions, similar to how a hole callout is used vs. dimensions. So, on second thought I may still have been correct. Now if you were to 3D print this, I'd still want some clarification on whether Flex will give you accurate enough results.
You know, I think that the production of drills and milling cutters is just like aluminum profiles that are extruded. You send the manufacturer documentation on which angles are pointed. And they use their software for production. They certainly won't use your model for CNC machining (unless you really want to). But I may be wrong. Once designing aluminum profiles, I always sent 2D documentation. And really, if you need some non-standard tool, you send the manufacturer the specification: shape, dimensions, cutting speed, type of material processed, they do the rest.
Thank you so much! Appreciate it!
It looks good from here.
