helical sketch

Probably an easy one, but I just can't find a way..



I want a "cosmetic" thread on a bolt I created. This cosmetic thread
should consist of just a helical sketch wrapped around my bolt
surface....



Anyone ?

you could also use a VSS.. and use a skether relation like sd12=trajpar*360*10 where "sd12" is the angular dimension.. and you want12 turns.. then just use a surface intersect to create your line.. if you need any more help let me know..
