Hello There,

 

I am trying to sweep a helix...

 

1) I made a helix

2) created a plane on edge and point -  (1st Ref - set origin to curve on and off  2nd Ref - coincident ?)

3) Sketch on that plane

   - Attempt to relate the center of the circle to the point on helix

 

I can't seem to relate the two... Am I broken or missing something ?

 

4) Sweep away

The only option that pops up is fix ?
