You can find the Spiral command in the Draw toolbar. Or you can enter the HELIX in the command line to activate the Spiral command.
After created a spiral,you can use it as a scanning path to create the spring, thread,circular stairs etc. You can specify the circle number,the twist direction, the center of the underside circle, the radius and diameter of the top and bottom circle as well as the height of the spiral according to your requirements.
