Hi there @JordanMcB,

 

Just checking......that you have a protrusion already inplace, in order to make the "Helical Cutout" from a body volume.....?

So i guess it is a licensing issue. Nuts have to shell out more cash for the higher version.

Ahh.....I suspect THAT is your issue. "D&D" only provides for "Basic" part design, assembly and motion functions. [I couldn't find more detailed information, on exactly which functions are excluded]
