Thread class callout in drafting NX 11

Creator
Creator

Would it be possible to add the thread class when dimensioning threaded holes in NX 11? It would be prefereable to not do this manually for every threaded hole. I've checked the drafting preferences for hole callouts and thread class does not seem to be an option that I can select.

I have seen several requests for this in the past. Not sure if it has been put in as an ER but really slows down the work flow having to add it in all the time.

I believe one option mentioned before is to go into the thread table files & specifically add them

%UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGII\modeling_standards\nx502_Threaded_Hole_Standard.xml

The thread callout is a bit lacking, you may have noticed the LH designator is NOT an option either, even though it is an option when you create the thread.  ER 7211193 if you want to join to get the LH designation in the thread callout.  I've supplied Siemens with all the drawing specs that show this is an actual thing Smiley Happy
