tshv247 is on a distinguished road

I have Fluent results. I am interested in viewing how a variable changes along the length of the helical coil from inlet to outlet. Please let me know how to create sections along the coil length so that I can estimate different variables along the length. If I create a plane at different angles, I cannot get area weighted average along the coil length. It will be an average in the whole plane.
Please help me.
