Having trouble selecting entities in sketch

mike_kelley685mike_kelley685 Member Posts: 3
I am trying to follow the example in the help menu to create a spring.  I am able to create a cylinder, and a helix.  I then create a new point plane on the end of the helix.  When I try to create a circle on the end of the helix, the pick point for the end of the helix will not light up.  I was able to copy and past the circle to the end of the helix but when I go to revolve, I can select the circle but cannot select the helix for the path.  Any ideas?

    Thanks!  I figured out I was using revolve when I should have used sweep.
