Thread symbol on drawing


If I modelled a thread (say on a hole) using "thread" function, is it possible that NX will automatically will draw/show  it on drawing according to the drawing standards, i.e. with a 3/4 circle (or dashed circle) around the solid circle? I could't find any automatic option for thread symbols on drafting...

What about: go to ->   Drafting Preferences-> View-> Threads and there choos Type (3/4 or whole circle) and Apply/Ok ?
You can also set the Pitch, wich is useful with threaded holes with chamfer.

Hi @S_Bachar,

You can also set this in the customer defaults settings.

Drafting > General/Setup > Customize Standard.

View > Common > Set Display type as you needed.

Changes to the customer defaults will be effective in the new parts once you restart the NX session.
