making a thread

making a thread

Post by Parameshwar Bab » Thu, 28 Nov 1996 04:00:00



I heard people saying this to make threads in the inner surface of an hollow cyclinder:

Draw a triangle in 2d shaper and loft it along the path of an helix.

I found that the base of the triangle does not remain aligned to the surface of the
cyclinder and hence the thread looks awful.
Has anyone got a solution for this problem?

Thanks
Babu
