DESCRIPTION

       Sweep  an  arbitrary  contour along a helical path. The sweep will be performed as a shear
       along the z-axis, so that the  orientation  of  the  contour  is  displaced,  rather  than
       translated, as the contour is swept.

       The axis of the helix lies along the modeling coordinate z-axis.

       An  affine  transform can be applied as the contour is swept. For most ordinary usage, the
       affines should be given as NULL.
