automatic chamfers of threaded holes

automatic chamfers of threaded holes

Current Situation

1. First step after adding a new bore design feature to a part is to define the position of it.

2.a) In the next step you can define the diameter of the in this case not threaded bore and add a chamfer to it. If

this sequence is fulfilled the chamfer diameter is chosen automatically to a useful diameter.

For example in case of adding a chamfer to a 10 mm diameter blind hole, Creo predefines this chamfer

diameter to 12 mm. This works only if the hole has no thread.

 

2.b) Contrary to this procedure Creo is choosing a completely wrong chamfer diameter if the bore is threaded.

For example if you want to create a M5x0.8 thread and then klick on the chamfer button the predefined diameter

is 11.20 mm, which is by far too big.

 

Could-be situation

Maybe there could be implemented the same functionality for threaded holes as it is well done for non threaded ones. This would save time, especially when there are a lot of different threaded hole diameters in one part, because it would not be necessary to change the chamfer diameter permanently.

 

PLEASE VOTE FOR MY IDEA 😉

Hello Roman,

I completely agree with you, I am facing this problem in my designs

I use extra chamfer feature after threaded hole creation
