    Drawing ALL threads in Solidworks?

    Shawn Hawkins

      I am trying to design something with threaded parts and I need the threads to be very fine; like .875" x 32 tpi. I know there is not a tap or die made that will cut those threads, (not readily available anyway and not cheap if so). I single point cut my threads on my lathe so taps and dies don't matter in my case. I would like to have Solidworks draw the hidden line for the minimim thread depth so how can I get it to do that.

      It's really frustrating to not have all sizes available for use. Is there a way to fill in the missing thread's information? Is there a file somewhere that has that data in an editable form?
