How to provide a Knurling on Cylindrical Rod?

I hace been trying to do a knurling operation on UG NX 8.5. Since there is no specific option, we have to do it manually of cylinder. I found one tutorial in Youtube but it is for hollow ring. Anybody seen a dumbbell rod might know what im talking about. Any tutorials or links?

Does it matter if it is on a ring or not? Would the operation be any different?

Here is how I would go about doing the process on solidworks:

Though, if the computer model does not require the cosmetics, it is much easier to call out the knurl pattern in the drawing.

I have seen the video with a ring knurling. I tried the same formula with cylindrical rod. But that wasn't working.
