      I have a 1" boss to thread (OD), The error message says it cannot 'cut thread' use 'extrude thread' but if I do that, then the diameter of the boss is oversize. I just want to cut a thread into the 1" diameter boss and have if fade out into a thread relief and past the chamfer at the part face, or first thread lead......

       

      Using extrude thread, the thread sits like a worm wrapped around the boss, it doesn't start or end where it should, like on a normal part

       

      If I have to calculate the minor diameter of the thread and then manually trim the thread lead on both ends then I would be better off using a manual helix, cutting a profile through the bosss... Meaning ignoring this new thread feature and doing it the old way....

       

      Am I missing something here....
