PMI for a thread

In a previous question, on the old BBS system, I learned that NX9 has the functionality for a threaded hole callout using PMI.

 

Has any functionality for an external thread been added? or am I possibly not seeing the existing ability?

 

NX 9.0.2

To add to this, I noticed when you create an external thread feature, there is a section titled "Callout".  I don't see this "Callout" info in the expressions, so is there some other way to access it, for use in a PMI note?

 

Thanks,

Dave,

 

PMI Hole Callouts can be used on external threads as well.  Set the Method to Hole Callout and then select the thread curve.  It will use the preferences from the Symbolic Thread Hole Callout Type so you may need to change the settings to adjust the Prefix/Suffix to get what you want.
