Set up helixes for the bolt threads

In this video you will make the bolt threads by using a profile curve and a helix in conjunction with Sweep NURBS. You will learn how to use a second helix as a Rail Spline to correct rotation issues with the Sweep. Then you will use the scale feature in the Sweep NURBS attributes to create a nice tapered look at the end of the threads.
