    Hole Depth vs Threaded Depth vs Screw

    Hao Tang

      Hi all,


      When creating a hole in solidworks, the hole selection has two options for depth: Blind Hole Depth and Tap Thread Depth. Say the Blind Hole Depth is 0.26 inches deep and the Tap Thread Depth is 0.17 inches. If I use a 1/4-20 screw, will the screw go all the way through to the end of the Blind Hole Depth, but only have 0.17 inches of threads interlocked with the part?
