Deduce a existant diameter or project a face

I would like to make a new Feature with FeatureScript. I would like to automatize the creation of screw thread. To do this I need to create a sketch on a surface. On this sketch I have to project the circle, or at least know the diameter of the screw. 
For the moment, I could create a sketch plane with a circle but I could not deduce the diameter of the screw.
I absolutely need this function. If there is an other existent Feature to automatize the creation of a screw thread or a cosmetic screw thread it will be excellent.
I hope I was clear in the description of my problem. :wink:

    @afbenevides: Thank you for your answer, but I know how to do it graphically, but I am to lazy to do it each time I need it. It's why I would code a function with features
    @kevin_o_toole_1: That is great! Thank you very much. :tongue:
