I would like to add a tapped hole specification to the solidworks toolbox, but I'm not sure what the various parameters mean (minor diameter inside, advance, etc.). Is there a guide that indicates what these parameters mean? Or could someone help translate these for my part?
I only do this a couple times a year so I cannot give you specific instructions. However, I will share my process. What I do is look up a known thread size (already in the table) then compare it to thread specs I find in either the Machinery's Handbook or online. Once I understand which parameter is which, I then enter my new thread size. Hope this helps you.
