Some screenshots of your attempt would help.

You can get screenshots by pressing F1, and they'll go into your Screenshots folder inside your install folder.

To get them on the forum, just upload them to an image hosting website and post the image's direct link.  It will automatically be embedded.

Welcome to the forum, @Konk!

 

If you need help with the pictures:

If this is what you get when things don't work, I wonder what Krakens you will accomplish when you manage to make it work!

I don't think there's anything to be done about that except careful placement and a lot of adjusting. You may need struts to hold the relative positions until it reaches weightlessness, if that's what you're asking about.

I'm just wondering is there any formula to calculate rotation degree for every part?

I don't know, but the numbers might be in the .craft file of your helix, if you know your way around there. (I personally don't)

EDIT: 1000 posts :D
