Display thread surface in shading

Is it possible to display the surface of a thread in shading?

Re: Display thread surface in shading

Yes it is possible to show threads when shading a model. You have left out some relevant information I think. Are you working with cosmetic thread surfaces or actual solid geometry representing the threads? Cosmetic threads are not solid geometry and would not show along with solids in the model when shaded. You can try enabling the show surfaces with shading option in the model display controls under options.

 

None of this may be relevant to your situation as I am speculating due to the lack of information available regarding your issue.

Re: Display thread surface in shading

Good evening,
I'll explain.
I would like to know if in the shaded display of the solid model it is possible to see the surface of the shaded fillet as in the attached image.
Is there an option?
Thanks,

Re: Display thread surface in shading

If you are working with the cosmetic thread surfaces created using hole features, you can see the surfaces in a shaded view if you select them. See this example. The glow effect of the red is enable using a hidden config option; enable_selection_glow yes

Fundamentally, no, this is not possible with Creo.  For that you would need some other cad software.

 

For example, these are from Inventor:

Here's a product idea requesting this functionality be added to Creo:

That looks like a simple texture map to me, it doesn't even look helical.  Blech...
