Newbie - Snap Ring Grooves

I am new to Rhino and for that matter 3d CAD. I have created a cylinder with an offset (eccentric) hole in it. I am now needing to add a snap ring groove around the exterior of the cylinder. I have searched every thing I can think of to find this with no luck. Can you guys help? Thanks.

Hello Jeff,
Sorry if I misunderstood your problem and/or level of your proficiency.

You could create a groove into cylinder by creating profile curve, then revolving it around the axis (Revolve command) to create solid which can be subtracted from the cylinder afterwards (BooleanDifference command).

See attached image and Rhino file.

Please explain further if needed.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.
