How to end a screw thread

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for how to terminate a screw thread. I’ve tried a scaling, rotating, revolving, but can’t quite get what I’m after. Would be awesome if there were a revolve/loft combined option. Any suggestions?


Why not extend it and then cut it off by subtracting off a horizontal flat plate?



Here’s a way. I’m expanding on what @tommyn is saying.

Thanks guys! I used your trick @TigerMike and it worked great. My next question was going to be about designing a clearance for the nut but I found another video you posted previously. Linking here for the benefit any others who may have the same question Adjusting Screw Threads - #3 by Rogerlj
