    New thread feature question

    Ashley Carbone

      Hi all,

           I'm quite new to Solidworks so please forgive my ignorance.

       

      Most of you have probably played with the new Thread feature in 2016/2017. My question is, is there a feature or option to run the thread out rather than have it finish at a sharp 90° as shown in the below photo?

       

      For example, if this bolt was being machined in a CNC lathe, the CNC controller will know to slowly "ramp" or "runout" the threading tool so it doesn't come to a sudden stop like pictured.

       

      Can this "feature" be illustrated in my Solidworks model? Thank you!
