    Cosmetic Thread Offset Distance

    Joe Cross

      I was curious to know to create an offset distance on a cosmetic thread. What I mean by this, is having a thread start not at the end of a cylindrical surface, but at a distance (say 1'') off of that edge, then have the cosmetic thread have a blind depth. Is this even possible without making thread cuts?

       

      Attached is a model of what i am looking to do. basically have a cosmetic thread on the bolt that starts a certain distance away from the top surface.

       

       

      thanks in advance
