Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Start SolidWorks in Part mode.

  2. Step 2:

    Front Plane>>Sketch.

  3. Step 3:

    Draw two circles of 20mm and 10mm dia.

  4. Step 4:

    Extruded boss/base.

  5. Step 5:

    Extrude it by 10mm.

  6. Step 6:

    Reference geometry>>plane and then select top plane at 10mm.

  7. Step 7:

    Plane1>>sketch.

  8. Step 8:

    Draw a circle of 10mm dia.

  9. Step 9:

    Extrude it by these settings.

  10. Step 10:

    Choose fillet.

  11. Step 11:

    Fillet the intersection edges.

  12. Step 12:

    Chamfer.

  14. Step 14:

    Top face>>Sketch.

  15. Step 15:

    Convert the outer edge.

  16. Step 16:

    Helix of 2mm pitch and 15 revolutions at 0º start angle.

  17. Step 17:

    Right plane>>Sketch.

  18. Step 18:

    Draw a profile like this co-incident to the helix using polygon tool.

  19. Step 19:

    Sweep cut under features tab.

  20. Step 20:
