I don't understand the parameters of the helix shape. From the docs:
P0 : Number of helixes - e.g. 2 for a double helix
P1 : Period - is related to the number of turns per unit length
P2 : Minor radius (major radius > minor radius)
P3 : Major radius
P4 : Shape parameter. If this is greater than 1 then the tube becomes
fatter in the y direction
P5 : Cross section type
P6 : Cross section rotation angle (degrees)
What is the "Shape parameter", "Cross section type" and "Cross section
rotation angle"? Are these explained in the docs?
