    I'm not an expert but as far as i know you can create helix like this

    Part.InsertHelix False, False, False, True,0,0;

    when you use InsertHelix command 2nd bool is true then its cw but when it false it creates ccw.

    Tested on sample macro and it works. :)

    for more info you can check online solidworks api help :)
