It's work for me, I'm not expert to solve this, but i tried alot, success but not same dimension :(
Problem is -- I didn't reach Step 3/4! When I click sweep, Path is activate, but profile say "Profile of Sweep are self intersecting (gap is 0.01mm)" it's error! Then I used "0.1 mm" between two circle. then it's works! It's by manual.. Nevermind, you did great work! Congrats RaviChandra ! God bless you and your loved one (SolidWorks)! :))

Nice job.. I was trying to make it like a ring but i got stuck with helical sweep, helix only goes one direction.. Can u assist me with this ? :)

Yes, but little different, I'm trying to make it to look like electromagnetic torus.. something similar to pic.. this purple stuff should represent a ring ( rope ) and I'm having dificulties to make this coils around it.

p.s.
sry for spelling.. my grammar isn't so good :)

@Nemanja, you mean something this?( but final shape you need is a closed loop and not a spiral i guess)
It is by Starnuti

You can follow this method of him..... It may give the results you want...
