Spirally fluted tube help

I am trying to make a spirally fluted pipe in ANSYS. I made the cross section as in the attached figure and sweeped on a straight line perpendicular to plane of the cross section. However I get a sort of a drill bit instead of the required spirally fluted pipe. Is there an issue with the cross section or the way I sweep ?

I tried sweeping on a helix but it gives an error that there is an intersection between the sweeped surfaces.

Thank you very much in advance
