How to make a spiral around non circular/conical body

lorenz_poigerlorenz_poiger Member Posts: 17 ✭✭
I would like to know if it is possible to have a line wrap around a body like the one shown in the picture below. The line should wrap around it with a constant pitch and no gaps. I want to use the line as a sweep path for some tubing (yes I have to draw the tubing). I cant think of an easy way, I can't even really think of a hard way either. Using the sketch wrapper feature script only allows for cylindrical/conical surfaces. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
