Thread callout (hole callout)

Hi guys

 

I customer wants to use the thread feature for exterior threads.

 

Attached you can find one of the "special" thread which are dimensioned with hole callout.

Is there a way to fix that problem? NX inteprets the / as a fraction.

 

2-1/4-4_1/2UNC from thd_english.dat

is there a symbol for / I can use so that NX does not use it for a fraction symbol?

 

Thank you

I *think* this relates to ER 7776177 and we had an intern submit IR7815725, which I tried to get converted to a PR, but I don't think it made it that far.  Tagging @BenBroad hoping he can dig deeper than I can.

Hi @DaveK,

 

You're right - the issue at hand does look very similar to the ones you mention.

 

ER 7776177 was closed against master ER 7201827.

Your IR 7815725 was closed as TQ but mentions PR 7776177 (closed as Enhancement).

 

Master ER 7201827 remains open.  I do not have any status updates for that ER.

 

Regards, Ben

So is there any known workaround for this problem?

 

Like a special symbol -> like </> or similair?

What font are your using for your note text?

The answer depends on whether it is an NX "drafting" font (e.g. "blockfont") or a Windows (Truetype/opentype/whatever) font (e.g. "Arial")
