    See the help files on 'Helical sweep'. Or, by all means, take a basic
    modelling course.

    I would think that you'ld make a helical sweep just like
    when you make a regular straight spring . . . only the
    profile (the first thing they ask for?) would be at an angle
    to the base of your spring. Don't forget to put in your
    rotating axis (I just tried this out and it doesn't warn you
    when you forget like it would if this were a regular revolve

    hope that helps.

    if you want a blow by blow to get to the helical sweep its:


    and then you have to start setting up your sketching planes
    and such . . .

    (this is assuming, of course, that you're on Pro/E version
    2001 . . .)
