NPT threads - Dont model taper

Question asked by Craig Cloud on Jan 14, 2020

When using the hole wizard to create an NPT thread, the model will create the taper that is produced by the thread cutting.  Is there a way to turn this off?  Even if I set the feature to cosmetic it still creates a taper, albeit smaller in diameter.  I ask because when I send a part to a machine shop that makes the parts off the model, they want to machine the part with the taper and then tap.  To get a properly made part, I have to model only a drilled hole and then manually call out the NPT thread.  This makes the model technically wrong because the threaded feature doesn't exist in the model.
