Turning sequence for helix

Turning sequence for helix

Any recommendations on what NC sequence to use to program this would be appreciated.  Helical sweep with .100" pitch that is mirrored.  We are using this as a locking feature for a gluing operation.  Is there an NC sequences in Turning similar to "trajectory" in milling?  If a groove is formed at one or both ends that is fine.

Isn't that just a set of right and left handed threads overlapping the same area? I don't use the Manufacturing module for turning, we don't have an NC lathe, but doesn't the lathe stuff let you do threads?
