How to add my own thread profile in automated thread feature? Also how I can to change the configuration of existing thread profiles?
You can add your own thread profiles in SOLIDWORKS by creating the thread profile and save it in .SLDLFP format at the default directory where thread profiles of SOLIDWORKS are located. The default directory is C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks\SOLIDWORKS 2016\Thread Profiles.
I, too, am trying to add a profile. However, I am unable to access this directory. I did a search for "Thread Profiles" on the C: drive and it does show the directory. I am not able to access it at all.
I am trying to add a thread profile for a 1-1/4"-24 UNS thread in Solidworks 2016 toolbox and am unable to do so. I have created the profile as such:
Thread Dia: 1.25
Thread Minor Dia.: 1.2415
Thread Minor Dia Inside: 1.2487
Tap Drill: 1.1991
Thread Description: 1-1/4-24 UNS
Threads Per Unit: 24
Full Size: 1-1/4-24
Any help? Thanks.
