How to model bolt?
Can anybody please show a simple tutorial how to model a bolt. Would be much appreciated :)

The thing that helps me in deciding how to model something ,is i always use to tend to use same methods of modeling i would use in making it. So if there is no idea how to create geometry, use blank and remove material in the same matter you would by using lathe and mill machine. And off-course use you-tube to visualize the production of the part ;) - im just speaking in genera that is the best method to model anything and it eases the documenting part of the job and if you are interested it simplifies the general idea of generating the NC ;)
