Cosmetic threads

Cosmetic threads

Hello I hope anyone would help me with my problems. If I create a hole with thread in the part and then make a cut (for example 5mm machined surface) on the surface there threads start. In the drawing the line symbolized the threads starts on the top not on the new surface which created by the cut. I knoew the easiest way to do it is to do the cut first, but can I do it in my way (first hole then cut) and still get the thread lines displayed from the new surface?

Fredrik, Use a surface trim to trim off the extra cosmetic thread. Select the machined surface as the trimming surface and the cosmetic thread as the surface to trim.

RE: Cosmetic threads

Fredrik, Have you created cosmatic threads as seperate feature instead of creating it in hole? If yes then I think you could select cosmatic theards by selecting feature from filter and then trim it from new surface. Sometimes you can not select new surface as trimming surface at that time create a plane passing through the new surface and trim cosmatic. Hope it will help you in fixing your problem.
