I have a question about which elements to select for the sweep operations.
Should the sketch and the helix be selected at the same time?
minute 6:17 of bejant's video.

It looks to me as if bejant swept the sketch but selected the helix.
In version 17 the sweep operation is a bit different. So I assume I go into 3D view and select the first helix for the first sketch sweep.
Something happened I tried to sweep then went to 3D view to select helix
then when I went back to finish the sweep operation the "Create Solid" and "Frenet" boxes were greyed out. I could not go back to reverse the operations so I could select them BEFORE selecting helix in 3D view.
So I had to close the file and start over at the point where there the 3 sketches were oriented.
What I did is to click "Create Solid" and "Frenet" before going to 3D view and selecting helix.
This seemed to work.
