 Helical cuts; how to set up?

I'm trying to cut a female thread (3/4 inch BSP parallel) and cannot get the helical cut to work. There don't seem to be any appropriate help files. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Tim

For a female thread (= threaded hole) you should simply use a CNC Tap tool. Apply the thread attribute to the holes in the model (in CAD) and then define a hole operation (e.g. center, drill, tap).
