It's very simple. Just go to shapes (next to geometry):

...then select the Helix tool:

Make sure to go to "top view" and draw the helix(it's a bit tricky). Anyways, once you draw it you will get this:

Then go to modify panel (see yellow arrow):

enter image description here

Make sure Your Height (under Parameters) is 0. Adjust the Radius 1 or Radius 2 to your liking (see yellow):

Finally ,open up Rendering (in the same modify panel):

Make sure to check Enable in view port and Enable in Render. You can also adjust the thickness there.

Press F9 to render and take your Output. It's as simple as that!

p.s. - Sorry about use of same images, my old pc is very slow.
