Cosmetic Threads (once more...)

Question asked by Serge Piastra on Mar 8, 2011

Could someone please confirm the following:
When adding an assembly feature (i.e. a revolve cut), cosmetic threads inserted
at part level will disappear in the assembly.

 

I have 2 parts, one of them has a tapped hole & cosmetic thread at each end.
I bring those 2 parts into an assembly. Both ends display the cosmetic threads.
I create a revolve cut (assembly feature) that cuts into both parts. The cosmetic threads disappear.
I roll back above the cut, they come back...

 

They do show up in the drawing, which is a good thing I guess.

 

I did a search on the forum, but couldn't find a similar issue.

 

Thanks in advance.
