Helically coiled carbon nanotube derived from T140

I made one more HCCNT that was derived from parent torus, T140.
The inner part should be weaved first. Here I keep the relative position of these heptagons unchanged.
The next step is to determine the HSP (Horizontal Shift Parameter) on the outer part of the torus. The pitch of the HCCNT will depend on the magnitude of HSP. For detail, check the papers mentioned in previous post.
