I need to show a 1/8 NPT on a model for a tube fitting. When using the hole command and selecting the inch NPT all I get in my model is what looks like a simple threaded hole. No taper to the threads. But in drafting the hole looks correct. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get the correct look in the model? I have been told by GTAC it is not possible.
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's the way UG/NX has ALWAYS worked. Besides, If the threads are not being modeled, tapering the hole wouldn't add all that much to the physical model. Now if your intentions are to create a photorealistic image, you're going to have to manually model the threads anyway since they ARE tapered.
It is what it is, but I enjoy not having to spend all that time in SoCal traffic ;-)
