make a linear extrude thicker?

Hi hackers winking smiley
I want to make a thread-like linear extrude, but the code-examples don´t tell how you can make the part thicker. I tried to rotate a square and then extrude it, but it seems even thinner....

linear_extrude(height=100, center=true, convexity=10, twist = 3600, slices=1000) 
    translate([20,0,0]) rotate([90,0,0]) square([10,2], center=true);

Can someone point me to a simple parametric thread-library ( worm gears etc. ), please?

thingiverse is our friend, although a "simple" library is still on my wish list...
