Creating a Screw with Sketchup

How many times you have wondered how to make the thread of a screw with SketchUp, or not? Here is the answer!

First you draw a circle. We click on the instrument "Circle" in the toolbar and then on the point of origin of the axes and widen our circle by following one, red or green, with the cursor, so that the vertices of the segments that make up the match with aces.

Created the circle, from this, we have to create a spiral. The steps to follow are the same that you can find in the post "HOW TO CREATE A SPRING WITH SKETCHUP", would not explain them again.

Now we have a cylinder created by the initial circle and a spiral of the same diameter with the plugin "Weld" we welded into a single segment.
