I am really struggling in trying to revolve around cylidrical body on a specified angle. I understand the degrees of rotation angle, but i am looking to revolve or extrude a certain shape for the length of the shaft.  Like trying to make a coil or a set of threads.


Can anyone help? I have tried to use sweep but sweep doesnt work with two sweep lines.

Thanks MBixler.


It's a good question. Now, it cannot create a coil/Thread as you expect, as there is no the function and no 3D sketch for it. We will think of your request in Future. Please continue to pay attention to our product.
