Is there any hole call out like tool to represent ACME Thread in a drawing?
You would need to use the Thread Tool for that.2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Thread PropertyManager
And once again....
what is the reference source for your ACME thread dimensions.
The dimensions of your model do not match standard ACME thread designation.
Have you ever turned a part on a lathe?
How do you measure radius dimensions of cylinders on real world parts?
Wouldn't it make logical sense to use the diameter dimensions in modeling the part?
Where did you come up with the major diameter for the ACME thread?Have you looked up the standard sizes for ACME threads in your Machinery's Handbook?

The YouTube video is not covering anything about engineering.
What textbook are you using to learn mechanical engineering design?
The person who created these videos must be using a textbook - I recognize the designs.
If the YouTube expert relies on this book, and you rely on the YouTube expert, then that should be a good endorsement for the book for you.
What book did your instructor use to learn engineering design?
The YouTube video is not using standard size for an ACME thread?
J. Mather, this is another example of too much dependence on videos, any videos, and not enough actual reading of legitimate information. Keep up the good fight, J.
Coming from a heavy machining background, I cannot stress the importance of this book enough. It was always frustrating getting parts that fell out of the scope of what is and is not an accurate part. It leads to confusion and clarification required. Which in the end leads to longer production times.
Whatever YOU design it will have to be built by someone. People on here having been trying to guide you to get you out of what could be bad habits.
I will second those ideas with one of my own, take the time and instead of asking questions pertaining to how to model something start focusing on HOW TO BUILD something. It matters not if you can design the most trick object out there,(I have friends in graphic arts jobs that do that), you have to design something that can be built and is accurate to the rest of the world according to it's function.
(Hence the title:Mechanical designer)
The fact that you are asking questions shows you are interested in aquiring more knowledge which is great. Really focus on the what is it's function, more than the how do I design it. The design functions will come. The how it is used is cultivated by understanding how mechanics work.
Very well stated Paul.
AMEN to that!!
Above books seem give profound knowledge in Design Engineering principles. I am more inclined to General engineering principles. Jack of all trades master of none, something like that.
I teach beginning engineering design.I use the two books recommended in first year, first semester class.I guess I am doing it (the teaching) all wrong.
One of my first year students just passed the CSWP this morning.
So he knows the Engineering Design principles and he knows SolidWorks.

I'm afraid you have answered Paul and defined your path. I'm done here.

Sign over my desk as a machine shop supervisor:
"If a man knows not which harbor he seeks, no amount of light will guide him"
Right below that in a smaller frame was this one
"Poor planning on your part does not make an emergency on mine"
"When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."
We need more teachers like you!! My youngest is working on her Industrial Engineering degree and she learns more from me on the weekends and family phone calls than from her inept and inexperienced teacher (just one professor, but for two classes).
I very much appreciate your posts and though I have a lot of great experience and accomplishments, I still get to learn from you and people like you. Thank you so very much!!
This must make you proud I'm guessing.
A rewarding job.............
Is there a way for me to "Like" this more than 100 times?
This was a part of tutorial I was give on ACME thread.
Usually I don't let them take the CSWP until their 4th year (About 50% CSWP pass rate on first attempt (I don't "teach to the test")).
This year I had two 1st year students pass the CSWP.
This year I had 50/54 pass the CSWA.
There is a lesson to be had right here Maha
If I use thread Property Manager what should this value to make a thread created by this cutting profile?
As a "Jack of all trades" I can tell you with absolute certainty that the Machinery's Handbook is THE must-have book, for anyone and everyone that is a "Jack of all trades".
Could be please attach the screen shot of Machinery’s Handbook where you can find these things then Machinery’s Handbook become more important to me?
Amazon.com: machinery's handbook
There are many books with different prices for sale. This book seems cheapest one among those. How about this book?
