Tapered thread

I need to draw up and print a tapered thread and I see there were a couple of threads started several years ago but none seemed to go anywhere. One was requesting advice to do exactly what I need to draw up but unfortunately the advice given was so short and cryptic and doesn’t make sense and isn’t helpful.

Anyone have any advice on drawing up a thread on a truncated tapered cone?
thanks

it is also useful to draw a profile and use the sweep tool on the outer line that arises after using the intersect tool

Hi Robert,

What you have demonstrated is one fascinating technique. I would never have thought of it.
Good job!!!
