Is there a way to create threads with the revolve tool, for example if I needed to make a 1/4-20 thread what would be the set up I would need to get an accurate copy of the threads.

This is the best I have come up with so far.

I used a download from McMaster Carr and turned on section cut aways and made a copy of the pitch at least I think that’s what it’s called, this gives me a starting point for the revolve tool

Doing it this way gets me almost there, but when it comes to threads I would think you would have to be exact.after I did a subtract and lined it up with the original bolt this is how far I got.

Are there any proven dimensions to use with the revolve tool to create threads that are accurate .

When using the revolve tool what do the amount of the angle mean, is there a chart that would have this information. I’m not a machinist so all can do is try to match the original.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
