Mohankumarg12 is on a distinguished road
I am creating a helix pipe(3D) in Design Modeler for this I calculated the co-ordinates and I created a 3D CURVE as shown in the picture.

I am unable to sweep the circle along the curve because it is not getting selected as a path.

Is there any other option for creating a helix.plz help me

siw will become famous soon enough
Since you are using ANSYS at version 12.1 read the the CFX-Mesh guide because it tells you on Tutorial 8 (page 201) the geometry creation of a heating coil in DM.
