    Rotor cut

      Dear guys,

      I have a question about this kind of
      split cut below .
      How am I going to construction  this cut below?

      I make a helix cut but not close enough to look like the feature above. Please help. Thanks!

          Create a helix that starts on the top and goes 1/2 revolution down. Then sketch a rectangle that extends from the lower end of the helix up to the top.

          Now you can do a swept cut of the rectangle along the helix.

          Next you can do a circular pattern to copy the feature at 180 degrees. You might need to check the "Geometry pattern" box.
