Sorry if this is a basic question. I am trying to make a square helix spline with rounded corners. Does anyone know how to do this? I tried messing around with the helix tool, but it seems more geared towards circular spirals.

Do you mean like this? If so, it's a matter of the settings you see there. The important bits are:
- End Angle/Subdivision = 90 (for squareness)
- Intermediate Points = None
After that I made it Editable (in this case via Current State To Object to get a copy), then Chamfered the corner points to get the rounded corners I think you mean...
