Many of our drawings are also used in parts manuals, exploded views, etc.
But, showing bolts and nuts with threads are so dark on the prints. I typically create a simplified config for threading with rotated cut extrudes every 1/4" (varies) but it still shows up as 2 solid circles at each cut. Then I hide one of each of these & turn the other into a .006 line weight as well as the bolt head detail lines. Very time consuming but looks great on the print.
I do not want to just suppress the threads on the default config.
Is there any way to do the preferred way only simpler & faster? I'm talking about multiple fasteners on a single print.
