[Example (old link)]1Image with desired result on the left
^ Desired result on the left

Here the end faces are missing. Is it possible to get them there or to generate them at every step?

  • $\begingroup$ Can you share an example simplified blend to look at? We can then get a better idea of what you are up against. $\endgroup$ – Craig D Jones Sep 25 '19 at 20:40

  • $\begingroup$ No, I mean the face you'd get if you pressed F on the end of the screw $\endgroup$ – schuelermine Sep 25 '19 at 19:59
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, can't see the intended effect from the original post image. $\endgroup$ – Craig D Jones Sep 25 '19 at 20:00
  • $\begingroup$ So the original mesh is just one face. Now if I apply the screw modifier, the edges around the face get rotated and copied, but the face itself vanishes. $\endgroup$ – schuelermine Sep 25 '19 at 20:27

Hi was looking at your image. Drew similar object and found that I had to enter the parameters and then apply the Screw Modifier, select the object, enter Edit Mode enter image description here

Select two edges and type F for fill.

Not sure if it will work for you. Image on left has modifier applied and face added. Blender 2.8 on Ubuntu 19.04.

  • $\begingroup$ I know, I was asking if it's possible to do it in the modifier. If I apply the modifier and then work on it, I lost the benefit of the modifier. $\endgroup$ – schuelermine Oct 1 '19 at 16:34
