Anyone know how to create a helix based on an ellipse rather than a circle?!

Thanks!

My second method discussed here is very similar:

Let us know if that isn't enough information to get you where you need to go.

- Thanks for both options. I'm just looking for a mathematically correct helix with a constant pitch along z-axis (20600 mm) but with a diameter in the x-axis of 7766 mm and a diameter in the y-axis of 5600 mm. I would like to then extrude a shape along the helix. Unfortunately, I cannot, say, produce a helix with a constant radius of 5600 and then simply stretch it in the x-direction to have a "width" of 7766 mm... which would be the preferred option.
