Right Hand Thread call out

309 Views, 4 Replies

Is there a way I can get a Right Hand thread note to display the RH the way it does the LH for Left Hand Notes.

I know this may stray from the correct and approved way of doing things, but it would eleiminate errors in the shop for us.

I've explained over and over that if it doesn't say LH it's a Right Hand, but we have a lot of mixed threaded parts on the same drawing and there are always mistakes made.

Having the RH show up in the thread note would be a big help.
any ideas?

We understand there is an issue here. I need to look into this more.


A possibility is to edit the thread note by RMB and select Text and add the text string RH to it. Please see attached image. Thanks.

Thanks,
Adding the text manualy is what we do now, I was looking for a way to have it place the RH automaticaly the way the LH is.
Thanks again.

Currently there is no way to customize the thread format to include the RH
designation. Other than editing each Thread Note as Shekar suggested you
could create a special Dimension Style that adds the 'RH' via the Suffix
field on the Text page. This Dimension Style could then be applied to the
right hand Thread Notes.
