How do you model the changing size of the enlarged helical and helical cross-section?

1. How do you change the diameter of the helical (size different from the beginning and end of the coil)?

2.If the diameter of the helical section is different (the beginning is small and the end is large)

The attached picture shows the size of the helical section changing.

I ask for your help.

The image is not visible, use the Preview button before posting.

You can add an additional section to the sweep. This creates a smooth transition between the first and the last section.
