3D cosmetic threads

3D cosmetic threads

More and more companies are using 3D dimensioning and annotation in Creo Parametric.

In a threaded hole with only appear ISO dimensions and 3D note with information drill but not the symbol of the thread with a semicircle.

Was it interesting that the symbol of the thread according to 2D show rules?

This is what you can actually see:

This is what you can see in the drawing that would be interesting to see in 3D:

It would be great to see the ISO thread symbol in the 3D representation with Creo View.

Interesting idea.  As it is defined, the 2D thread representation is orientation-dependent (it is shown in perpendicular orientation, and the quarter-circle not included is determined by the viewing direction, not anything intrinsic about the thread), which makes it difficult to translate to 3D.  We could in theory have the thread as something that can be shown in a combination state, and assigned an annotation plane which defines the viewing direction, but right now we'd be getting out in front of the evolving standards if we did.

It would be nice that it could also show the thread as shown in the picture attached.
