I'm just getting my head around threads.
I'm not sure why but when I alter sketch 2 and take the 15 diameter to 16mm it recalculates and produces a thread along the hole bar!
Am i going about this the wrong way. Basically the shape is correct with the diameter on the center part wanting to be 16mm
Any help would be appreciated. T
Thank you

    Hi @stuart_hatherway - it's because when you make sketch2 the same diameter as sketch1, the faces of the extrudes become one and the helix calculates along the entire length of the face. Change sketch 1 first and you will be fine.
