One of them is a shoulder. But you guys can look at things your own way.

Ok, enough renders for now.
How to make a twisted cable.
The plugin off screen is Fredo's Twisting.

Prima again ! :thumb: :D
after you have already twisted all the cables, about in the middle of the gif you delete 5 outer cables to copy the remainig outer one again around the middle axis 5x again - what makes this new copy step necessary?

It's not technically necessary, but the twist has made them all unique components even though they are identical. By replacing them they become instances of one component rather than 6 separate components, this saves file size and makes it easier to modify them if I need to in future.

Here's a little demo of making a very smooth tapered spindle. The pitch, length and number of threads is up to you.
This is a single thread using four helices at 90deg. The method creates a large file size, so not for general work, more for 3d printing types of work where you want a very smooth surface.
There is one point where a menu item is off screen, it is just Explode, to put the helices and cylinder into the same context.
