Inventor 2011: Does threads show in section view

Hello,

English is not my first language, so I have problem to discribe my question.

 

Question:

Does threads show in section view?

I found the inventor 2011 represent the threads with dash line.

Can it be present by teeth?

 

|_|  |_|  |_|  |_|  |_|  |_|  teeth   instead of    - - - - - - - - - - - - -  dash line

 

Please see my attached bmp file to understand my question.

 

Thank you so much.

The "Threads" in Inventor are a BMP image applied to the surface, for real threads you would need to use the "Coil" feature and physically produce the threads on your part.

I still would love to see an option when creating a detail view that, when a threaded area is selected, would show the actual thread profile based on the thread information from the model (acme, buttress, etc.).

thank you, blair.

 

To create real threads with Coil feature, what are the threads informations required?

The "Machinist Handbook" from Industrial Press is probably one of the better books out there. I believe the 27tth edition is the current version.

 

You should be able to Google "Industrial Press". You might also find it available on Amazon, both new and used copies.

You could use Machinery's Handbook or the thread.xls file located in the Design Data folder.

Here is a tutorial (written for another CAD program - but you should be able to figure it out.

Need to know major diameter, pitch and length normally given in thread note.  Generally 60° profile with perhaps point modification as indicated in Machinerys' Handbook.  For visual purposes probably don't need to get too detailed.  For manufacturing purposed the machinist generally just wants the thread note (no modeled threads).

You know, I always forget about pulling data from the THREAD.XLS file. I always head back to the Machinist's Handbook.
