my sentence is below: As we’ve explained above that round bar(including both of metal and carbon material) has a helical cut on the surface that uses to determine the beauty value.

Should I utilize uses or using in this context?

  • Your sentence makes no sense to me at all. Can you add an explanation of what you mean to ask? – Davo Mar 30 '19 at 12:44
  • @DavoI there is a helical cut on the round bar, the helical cut is used to determine the beauty value of that round bar. I am trying to translate it from Chinese to English for practicing in English translation learning. – Fresh Learner Mar 30 '19 at 12:57
  • I don't understand what "beauty value" is - is this like "quality"? If so, Michael Harvey's answer below is good. – Davo Mar 30 '19 at 13:36
  • @Davo Yes, it is like "quality", thank you all the same^_^ – Fresh Learner Mar 30 '19 at 13:52

Neither. Possibly "As we’ve explained above, that round carbon and metal bar has a helical cut on the surface that is used to determine the beauty value."
