That's Good! Can I quote that from time to time?

How about extrude along path? Shouldn't have to explain any further.

Extrude along path does not work with 3D splines. Kind of hard to extrude along a helix when you can't draw a helix.....

I don't have anything in my personal files and I've since changed positions and don't even do mechanical stuff anymore. I don't have ACAD 2002, so I can't duplicate it. I do know, in fact, that I drew many bolts in 3-D and with "true" threads. Also, don't tell me how you CAN'T do it, that is obvious. That is like my 12 yr old saying, "I tried it and it didn't work, so I quit."

Give me a day or two to find a drawing at home. I should have one on a disc or something. Its been over 5 yrs! Patience. Message was edited by: steve216586

All I have is this drawing, although it is very primative it is a true 1/4-20 screw. It does not spiral though like a real screw does. I had to erase some title block info. and other graphics.

The file is too large to post here. I do concede, looking at this old drawing, that it is graphically correct, it is not physically correct. Might as well be a 2-D drawing for all intents and purposes. My apologies, but my statement about programs stands. You have to know about drafting to adequately use AutoCAD. There are no "magic" buttons or commands.
