Add thread profile to Toolbox in Solidworks 2016

Question asked by Tommy Kowalczyk on May 26, 2016

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:

Size: 1-1/4

Series:  UNS

Thread Dia: 1.25

Advance: .04167

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


I want to be able to use the THREAD feature and have Solidworks actually cut this thread profile.  The attached example exists in Solidworks and is a 1-1/4-12 thread.  I am looking to generate a 24-pitch thread profile.

Any help?  Thanks.
