Add vs New Extruded Part for Subtraction etc
Even though I've had an account, I'm finally diving-in (recently from Solidworks). So, I'm new.... I really need the part studio top-down design concept and am liking the concept. I need two cylindrical parts that connect on the edges that provide an adjustable gap between them when you turn one against the other. The profile of the edge has to have "steps" so they can't slide out of adjustment. I'm just trying to make a matching part and do a subtraction. Any help/advice is appreciated. (On a different note, it'd be nice if there was a multi-segmented helix. No need to get degrees or clockwise vs counterclockwise, just pick a point on an existing helix to add pitch and turn. And maybe be able to add filets to the profile?)
