    Threads/sketching on a circular surface

    Daniel Dionne
      I have read about creating threads but I need a bit more help. I am starting with a cylinder and now i want to use the helix method to create external threads from top to bottom of this cylinder. How do I make a helical curve on the surface of the cylinder?

      Any help would be appreciated. I hope to use the part for finite element analysis when it is finished.
